on defence 

By Phifip Webster, ChiefPoUtical Correspondent 


An 18-month attempt by 
the Liberal/Sorial Democratic 
Alliance to avoid a damaging 
split on defence ended yester- 
day with Dr David Owen, the 
SDP leader, in open disagree- 
ment with a compromise on 
the future of the Polaris 
deterrent painstakingly agreed 
by experts in both parties. 

Dr Owen, on the day that 
the parties' join! commission 
on defence pul the finishing 
touches to its long-awaited 
report, made a speech in Bonn 
which many members regard- 
ed as undermining their oon- 
dnskms. His. statements also 
upset senior' SDP' colleagues 
and Mr David Sted, the 
Liberal Party leader. ‘ 

There are fears among lead- 
ers of both parties that the 
divisions at the top. of the 
Alliance on defence will be 
exploited by opponents in the 
manner that so damaged the 
Labour Party at the 1985 
general election. 

Although there was no pub- 
lic crititismjaP Dr Owen by 
Alliance colleagues, who real- 
ize ihaLarow will be damag- 
ing.- many are seething at his 
stance since it became clear 
that the commission . would 
leave open the question of 
whether Polaris should be 
replaced mid not give the 
commitment he believed it 
should to Britain rcmaininga 
nuclear weapons state. 

Dr Owen repeated that fine 
to the Anglo-German society 
yesterday only hours after the 
commission .had -agreed; a 
report stating that the Alliance 
would delay a decision on 
“whether, .mid if so how” a 
replacement to Polaris would 
be introduced.

defence spokesman, and Mr 
James Wellbeloved, a former 
SDP MP, had made an obvi^ 
ous attempt to ensure thatDr 
Owen was not portrayed as 
being isolated by the report. 
They insisted that a covering 
. letter from the chairman, Mr 
John Edmonds, a former se- 
nior diplomat; should be is- 
sued with the report when it is 
published - on Wednesday 
stressing their support for the

their belief that the 
commission's report was 
compatible. 

. That policy, agreed last 
September in Torquay, states 
that “Social Democrats would 
not abandon Britain’s existing 
nuclear capability and are 
willing to replace Polaris.” 

Whirhas particulariy upset 
Liberal and SDP coramisson 
members is that the Liberal 
representatives, including Mr 
Jim Wallace; the defence 
spokesman, and Mr Paddy 
Ashdown, his predecessor, 
have moved-considerably in 
even accepting the jpossibflhy 
foal Polaris m ight be replaced. 


which has infuriated the Lib- 
eral CND organization. 

A senior Liberal commis- 
sion member said last night: 
“Everyone has moved, except 
foe incandescent doctor. But 
then he is a conviction politi- 
cian and is not allowed to.' 

There is, however, no doubt 
that the' SDP leader was 
deeply angered and provoked 
by reports two weeks ago 
portraying foe likely commis- 
sion findings as being a defeat 
. for him, especially when it was 
believed, that those reports 
were based on remarks by Mr 
SleeL 

Since then he has taken 
every opportunity to empha 
size bis support for a Polaris 
replacement. Dr Owen told 
the Council for Social Democ- 
racy last month: “1 must tell 
you bluntly foal I believe wc 
should remain a nuclear weap- 
on stale.” 

Yesterday, in a speech 
about a European nuclear 
defence strategy, he said it was 
impossible to see how the call 
for . strengthening European 
defence could be confined to 
conventional deterrence and 
exclude nuclear deterrence. 
Spelling out the SDFs policy 
on Polaris, Dr Gwen said that 
a United Kingdom decision to 
abandon or phase out nuclear 
weapons would not be the 
most convincing way to 
strengthen the European pillar 
within Nato. “Wfaat is viral to 
Europe is that France should 
not be left as the only Europe- 
an nuclear weapon state.” 

Dr Owen said that the 
Soviet Union increasingly did 
not press for the abandonment 
of European nuclear weapons 
but concentrated on putting 
up obstaclesto their replace- 
ment.

Wapping 
vote result 
due today 

By Mkhael McCarthy 

Today could see the first 
sign of an end to foe 19-week 
dispute between News Inter- 
national and foe 5,500 print 
workers who went on strike 
when the company moved to 
its new plant at wapping. 

Sources close to the leader- 
ship of foe :laigest union 
involved, Sogat '82, were yes- 
terday predicting a narrow 
majority in fevour of accept- 
ing foe company's £50 million 
compensation package in foe 
ballot whose result will be 
announced this afternoon. 

The other unions involved, 
foe National Graphical Asso- 
ciation and the Amalgamated 
Engineering Union,- will today 
announce the results of their 
ballots of members affected. 
It is considered certain that 
the NGA printers mil reject 
the offer. 

Today is foe deadline set by 
the company for acceptance or 
rejection of foe terms, which 
involve £50 million in redun- 
dancy payments and the gift of 
the former . Sunday Times 
buildings in Gray's Inn Road. 
‘Opposition to the deal has 
stemmed from printwprkers 
insisting that monetary com- 
pensation is secondary to the 
issue of reinstatement. 

. Heading foe opposition to 
the deal are foe members of 
Sogat’s London machine 
branch, nearly 2,000 workers.

Miss Brenda Dean, the

If Sogat accepts it and foe

would be given to Sogat alone.

Bishops’ report rejects 
doubts on miracles 


The Bishops of the Chnrch 
of England yesterday made it 
plain that they believe in foe 
□tirades of Christianity, par- 
ticularly foe Virgin Birth and 
foe Resurrection of Jesus 
Christ. 

In a hi ghly detaile d docu- 
ment, the Bishops implicitly 
critized the Bishop of Durham, 
foe Right Revoend David 
Jenkins, who had cast doubt 
on the miracles which many 
believe are central to the 
Christian faith. 

Dr Jenkins, who has not 
changed his views, signed the 
report which was said to be 
onaumioas bat acknowledged 
that these beliefs coaid be 
questioned in good faith. 

Speaking after foe publica- 
tion of the doemnent. The 
Nature of Christian BeUef,Dr 
Jenkins said: “It is a pity that 
foe statement and foe docu- 
ment could not be more open, 
relaxed and creative a boat 
fajfo as exploration. It does 
however recognize this feature 
of iaithand was the best%e- 
cottid get" 

It is believed he and the 
Bishop of Birmingham, Dr 
Hugh Montefiore, have pro- 
tested privately at the omis- 
sion from the published 
version of two -crucial words. 

In six short paragraphs foe 
House of Bishops answers 
what It considered the central 
questions. The second states: 
“As regards belief that 
Christ's tomb was empty on 
the first Easter Day, we 
acknowledge and uphold this 
as expressing the faith of foe 
Chnrch of England, and as 


affirming that in the Resurrec- 
tion life the materia! order is 
redeemed, and foe fullness of 
human nature, bodily mental 
and spiritual, is glorified for 
eternity."

This, probably the central 
statement in foe whole docu- 
ment, should have had foe 
words “part of" inserted be- 
fore “the faith of the Chnrch of 
England", it is understood, a 
change which afters its mean- 
ing. The Bishop of Birnung- 
bam, asked whether the report 
was therefore not tmanimons, 
told The Times: “It is de- 
scribed as ananinMns", and 
added “I think my proper 
response is to make no com- 
ment about this" 

The whole tenor of the 



report is theologically conser- 
vative and critical of certain 
views — not attributed by name 
to anyone — of a more liberal 
kind. The signs are that the 
liberals among the bishops, 
plainly a minority, fought a 
long rearguard action almost 
phrase by phrase at successive 
meetings of the House of 
Bishops. At one point the 
prospect of a unanimous re- 
port seemed remote, it is 
understood. 

In another key passage, the 
bishops admit their differ- 
ences on foe issue of tire empty 
tomb. 

“On foe question whether, 
as a result of this divine act of 
Resurrection, Christ's tomb 
that first Easter Day was 
empty, we recognize foal 
scholarship can offer no con- 
clusive demonstration; and the 
divergent views to be found 
among scholars of standing 
are reflected in foe thinking of 
individual bishops. But all of 
, ns accept, first, that belief that 
the tomb was empty can be 
held with fall intellectual in- 
tegrity. secondly that this is 
foe understanding of the wit- 
ness of Scripture, and thirdly 
that this House acknowledges 
and holds this belief as ex- 
pressing foe faith of foe 
Chnrch of England, and of its 
historic teaching, affirming 
that in the Resurrection life 
the materia] order is re- 
deemed, and the fullness of 
human nature is taken into 
God’s eternal destiny for his 
creation,"

‘Invisible’ 
setback 
for trade 

By David Smith 
Economics Corresondent 

Britain had a current ac- 
count surplus of £528 million 
in the first q uarter of the year, 
nearly £300 million down on 
provisional estimates because 
the invisible trade' surplus 
came out at £1.93 billion 
instead of the expected £2.2 
billion. 

The first quarter surplus 
compares with the £3.5 bimon 
official forecast for the year as 
a whole — despite foe inclu- 
sion in foe first quarter figures 
of a £439 million abatement 
on Britain’s contribution to 
foe 1984 .EEC budget 
Meanwhile, industry's in- 
vestment intentions are run- 
ning below foe Treasury’s 
forecast, according to foe De- 
partment of Trade and 
Industry's twice-yearty sur- 
vey, published yesterday. 

This comes amid wide- 
d doubts about foe 
icelloris belief that foe 
economy will grow by 3 per 
cent this year.

Ministers to study 
law on hippies 

By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 


A special committee of 
Cabinet ministers, probably to 
be chaired by Mr Douglas 
Hurd, Home Secretary, is to 
look into the laws which 
should be used against groups 
of hippies such as the contro- 
versial “peace convoy". 

The decision, taken after a 
30-minute Cabinet discussion, 
came only hours before Mrs 
Thatcher told the Commons 
last night that she would do 
anything to make life as 
difficult as possible for hippie 
convoys, including possibly 
introducing legislation on 
criminal trespass. 

Ministers from foe Depart- 
ments of Environment, Trans- 
port, Health and Social 
Security and foe Ministry of 
Agriculture will be on the 
committee, and they may be 
joined by law officers. 

Faced "with renewed pres- 
sure from Conservative MPs, 
the Prime Minister went much 
further than her ministerial 
colleagues in promising action 
on hippie gangs. Home Office 
ministers have been firmly 


resisting demands to make 
trespass on private land a 
criminal offence. 

But, pushed by Sir Peter 
Emery, Conservative MP for 
Ho niton. Mra Thatcher told 
the Commons: “I make it 
perfectly clear that if fresh 
legislation to deter hippies, 
fresh legislation on criminal 
trespass, is needed it will be 
introduced." 

Her promise came after 
number of Conservative back- 
benchers, led by Mr David 
Heathcoat-Amory, MP for 
Wells, said the present law was 
not adequate 

Mrs Thatcher said the hip- 
pies “accepted all foe advan- 
tages and benefits of a free 
society, but refused to rise to 
any of its responsibilities". 

• Hie 300 members of the 
hippie convoy were last night 
facing eviction after a four-day 
occupation of common land 
administered by the Forestry 
Commission in the New For- 
est at Stony Cross, near Lynd- 
hurst, Hampshire.

Electricity 
bills to 
drop 3Vi% 

By David Young 

Energy Correspondent 

Electricity bills are to be cut 
by 3.5 per cent from July 1, 
with a further cut possible in 
October, in the wake of foe 
new price agreement between 
the electricity industry and 
British Coal. 

The price of coal delivered 
to power stations over the 
next five years has been cut — 
the first time in the long 
history linking foe two indus- 
tries. It follows the slump in 
world oil prices, which has 
made it economic once again 
for the Central Electricity 
Generating Board to switch on 
its oil-fired furnaces. 

The five-year agreement 
will reduce the cost of coal at 
power stations by £600 mil- 
lion over the next two years. 

Under the agreement, back- 
dated to April 1, the CEGB 
guarantees to buy 72 million 
tonnes from British Coal this 
year and at least 70 million 
tonnes each .year Tor the 
following four years. This 
represents 95 per cent of the 
CEGB’s annual coal bum 

The new deal, confirmed 
yesterday, has been shaped to 
provide a three-tier pricing 
agreement under which an 
increasing amount of the coal 
involved will be priced in 
relation to foe then current 
world market price. 

The 13 - area electricip' 
boards will cut the domestic 
electricity price by 0-2 pence 
per unit from all bills for foe 
quarter starting April I. and 
issued after July I. An average 
household will have a cut of 
between £6-£7 per quarter. 
Monthly-billed industrial and 
commercial customers will 
have bills cut by around 5 per 
cent, and big industrial users 
will pay 7-8 per cent less. 


Soweto 

ban 

sparks 

rioting 


FrtHB Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

Violence erupted in central 
Johannesburg yesterday after 
a meeting called by the United 
Democratic Front anti-apart- 
heid organization was banned 
by police under terms of an 
edict issued on Wednesday by 
foe Minister of Law and 
Order, Mr Louis Le Grange- 

Bishop Desmond Tutu, tire 
Anglican Bishop of Johannes- 
burg, challenged the decree by 
announcing that he had told 
his clergy to go ahead with 
commemorative services on 
June 1 6, tire tenth anniversary 
of the start of the Soweto 
uprising. 

Unless Mr Le Grange grants 
an exemption, services are 
covered by the decree, which 
bans until the end of the 
month all indoor meetings 
linked to the Soweto anniver- 
sary or foe adoption on June 
26, 1955 of the Freedom" 
Charter, which became the 
manifesto of tire outlawed 
African National Congress. 
Outdoor gatherings have al- 
ready been banned. 

Yesterday black youths 
stoned a supermarket in the 
business district of Johannes- 
burg after foe cancellation of- 
the UDF meeting, to demand 
the legalizing of the ANG 

Police with dogs brought the : 
riot under control in about 20^ 
minutes. UDF organizers’ - 
were told by police that “any- 
thing to do with the ANC" was 
covered by Mr Le Grange's 
ban on the grounds that the 
ANC was a signatory to the 
Congress Alliance, the body 
which adopted the Freedom 
Charter. 

Bishop Tutu said foe ban 
was “insensitive and 
provocative," adding that “we . 
have not yet reached the stage - 
where we must ask permission 
from a secular authority to" 
worship God". Mr Le Grange 
seemed determined to pro-" 
voke blacks so as to give the 
police a pretext for attacking' 
them. 

Violence also flared at Eden 
Park, near Alberton, south of 
Johannesburg, when police 
used tear gas and shotguns to ~ 
break up a crowd which had 
gathered to protest against 
rent increases.

NHS managers rally 
to defend Tories’ 
efficiency revolution 

By Nicholas Timmins, Social Services Correspondent 


' The National Health Ser- 
vice management board and 
-NHS general managers yester- 
day rallied around Mr Leu 
Peach, acting chairman of the 
board, as he declared that the 
sudden resignation of Mi 
'Victor Paige, the chairman. 
was not the beginning of the 
end of the Government's 
management revolution. 

Mr Peach, aged 51, on 
'secondment as personnel di- 
rector from bis post of person- 
-nel director at IBM, said: 
"“General management is al- 
ready delivering the goods. It 
"will continue to do so both at 
'the centre through the man- 
agement board and out in the 
districts and regions. The 
- momentum of change will not 
be lost” 

Mr Peach acknowledged 
there were pressures on the 
general managers /‘notably 
those of the politicians”. But 
in apparent reference to Mr 
Paige’s statement that differ- 
. ing priorities, objectives and 


constraints between himself 
and Mr Norman Fowler. Sec- 
retary of State for Social 
Services, bad made for diffi- 
culties, Mr Peach raid: “We 
have to recognize this is a fret 
of life. After all even industrial 
chairmen do not always be- 
have consistently.” 

Speaking at the annual con- 
ference of the Institute of 
Health Services Management 
in Buckston, Derbyshire, to an 
enthusiastic reception, Mr 
Peach said he had read with 
some disbelief a highly critical 
assessment of Mr Paige’s per- 
formance published in the 
Health and Social Services 
Journal this week. That sug- 
gested Mr Paige had “failed to 
live up to expectations”, 
“lacked sufficient authority” 
and was “totally out of his 
depth”. 

But Mr Peach acknowl- 
edged the criticism that “the 
management board has not 
communicated its purposes 
and success efficiently”. 


There had, however, been 
concrete success with the ap- 
pointment of 750 general 
managers within two years, 
more patients treated, shorter 
waiting lists, tagger efficiency 
savings and tawd sales, and 
better management systems 
introduced. “There is now 
very considerable momentum 
building up behind all the 
activities on which the man- 
agement board is trying to 
help you produce a better, 
more efficient cost-effective 
health service. 

“It remains quite remark- 
able how employees can con- 
sistently rise to challenges by 
competent managers, despite 
an apparent lack of resources, 
and with the commitment 
which already exists within 
the NHS, we have a head start. 

“The management board 
and I are determined that 
despite our sadness at Victor 
Paige's resignation the hard 
won momentum will not be 
lost.” 


Independent plan 
to resolve disputes 

By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 


- Mr John Prescott, Labour’s 
chief employment spokes- 
man, yesterday suggested that 
an independent trade union 
body be established to help 
resolve industrial disputes and 
so limit the role of the courts. 

At the annual conference of 
the National Union of Sea- 
men in Liverpool, he criti- 
cized the way courts had 
become more active in indus- 
trial relations and increasingly 
supported employers against 
employees. 

He accused the courts of 
creating new civil wrongs to 
restrict rights given to trade 
unionists by Parliament 
' He also said that “they have 
given the nod to a Tory 
government to encourage 
$aem to change the law”. “We 
cannot simply exclude the law 
tiom industrial relations, but 
Parliament needs to create a 
dew framework which is bal- 
anced and doesn't create a 
climate of hostility against 12 
{pillion citizens of this 
country. . 

‘ “Our aim should be to 


change the framework of in- 
dustrial relations law so that 
recourse to the courts is the 
last rather than the first 
resort,” Mr Prescott said. 

He set out four basic op- 
tions. First, to keep the status 
quo, which was not an “attrac- 
tive option”. Second, to re- 
move the law totally from 
industrial relations as argued 
by some trade unionists. 
Thirdly, the continental sys- 
tem of labour courts could be 
followed 

“The fourth option is to 
extend the existing 
institutions,” he said 

In addition to existing bod- 
ies such as Acas, which concil- 
iated in industrial disputes, 
and the Employment Appeal 
Tribunal, which dealt with 
employment righs and re- 
sponsibilities, “we could have 
some sort of independent 
trade union body which would 
have jurisdiction in such 
cases”. 

Mr Prescott favoured the 
fourth option. 


Beaten nurse recovers 
after a 10-day coma 


' Kathryn Jones, a British 
■nurse who was beaten and left 
3or dead during an American 
[holiday, smiled yesterday as 
ber boy friend and colleagues 
$at by her bedside at the 
Southampton General 
Hospital 

* Her courageous fight back 
■from a 10-day coma alter the 
Attack in Miami last month 
has astonished donors. 

A chartered air ambulance 
flew Miss Jones, aged 27, of 
Southampton, from Florida to 
JEastkigh airport, Southamp- 
ton, on Wednesday night and 
transferred to the hospital 
where she used to work. 

Doctors said that she has 
recovered limited speech, but 
can remember nothing of the 
ordeal 

Mr Michael Siebert, aged 
18, from Maryland, has been 
charged with kidnap and at- 
tempted murder. 

Mr Roger Jones, aged 34, 


who kept a vigil by her bedside 
in America, described how he 
had played ber favourite tapes 
and shouted at her for days on 
end to bring her out of the 
coma. 

He even bought her a huge 
pair of baseball boots to wear 
in bed. 

“When she saw them she 
laughed.” 

A hospital spokesman said 
her condition is satisfactory. 

Miss Jones was abducted 
from a telephone box in 
Miami and left abandoned in 
a swamp 36 hours later with 
severe head injuries. 

Her holiday insurance will 
cover the £50,000 cost of 
chartering the air ambulance. 
• Christine Mullins, aged 24. 
a nurse, of Harwich, Essex, 
who had been in a coma for 18 
months after she was shot

Sisters ‘in bomb team 9 


By Richard Ford 


Two asters were part of an 
Irish Liberation Army bomb- 
ing team that planted an 
explosive device that ripped 
through a crowded village 
discotheque Jailing 11 British 
soldiers and six civilians. 

The 51b bomb, which had 
been left in a shoulder bag at 
the Droppin Well public 
house/disco at Ballykefiy. Co 
Londonderry, exploded as the 
last slow records of the eve- 
ning were playing cansing 
maximum impact on the 100 


soldiers and civilians, it was 
alleged yesterday. 

Five people from London- 
derry are accused at Belfast 
Crown Court of the bombing 
m December 1 982. 

Three women, including a 
mother and daughter, and two 
men each deny murdering the 
17 victims and other terrorist 
charges ranging from attempt- 
ed murder to causing grievous 
bodily harm. 

The hearing continues 
today. 


Drug aid 
in battle 
on heroin 

By Michael Horsnell 

An important new drug aid 
in the fight against heroin 
addiction is undergoing clini- 
cal trials and could be avail- 
able to doctors within the next 
year. 

The heroin antidote nal- 
trexone, developed by Du 
Pont Pharmaceuticals, neu- 
tralizes an addict's “fix” and 
has been so successful in the 
United States that the Depart- 
ment of Health is expected to 
grant a licence in October. 

The introduction of nal- 
trexone is also seen as an 
important weapon in the 
struggle to reduce the inci- 
dence of Aids amongst addicts 
through the common use of 
needles and the rising drugs- 
induced crime rate. 

Opiates, such as heroin, 
morphine;, methadone and 
pethidine, latched on to opiate 
receptors in the brain to given 
“high”. But naltrexone has an 
affinity for the receptors, 
about 150 times greater, so 
that when an addict takes it it 
is normally impossible then to 
get a high from his habit 

A leading American expert 
in the use of naltrexone. 
Professor Herbert KJeber^pro- 
fessor of psychiatry at Yale 
University School of Medi- 
cine, said yesterday: “It’s a 
substantial advance in the 
treatment of addiction be- 
cause it offers a non-addictive 
way of treating the addict on 
an out-patient basis and, when 
combined with therapy, can 
be a very useful tool for 
rehabilitation.” 

An addict has to be off his 
fix tor about a week before he 
can receive the drug without 
incurring massive withdrawal 
symptoms, and is then only 
required to take naltrexone in 
tablet form three tiroes a week. 

The drug is a combination 
of two other heroin antago- 
nists, naloxone, which is short 
acting and poorly absorbed, 
and cydazocine, which has 
unpleasant side-effects. 

There are up to 40,000 
heroin addicts in Britain, of 
whom fewer than 6,000 are 
registered and most of these 
are believed to cany the Aids 
virus. Dr Colin Brewer, direc- 
tor of the Community Alco- 
holism Treatment Service, 
said taking the drug could be 
used as a condition of proba- 
tion to help addicted 
offenders. 

He told a symposium at 
Westminster Hospital yester- 
day. “Other drugs with a 
similar neut ralizing , antago- 
nist effect on opiates have 
been available for some time 
but are too short-acting or too 
toxic. 

“The advantage of 
naltrexone is that it is safe, 
comparatively long-acting and 
can be given by mouth three 
times a week."

Lord Scarsdale at Kedlestou 
for the 


on Indian affection for the Rig to t 


Pleas abroad to rescue hall 


The National Trust may 
seek donations in India as well 
as in Britain and the United 
States Cowards its £2 million 
appeal to save Kedlestou Hall, 
Derbyshire, for the nation. 

The late Lord Canon, uncle 
of the present owner. Lord 
Scarsdale, was Viceroy of 
India between 1898 and 1905 
and the house contains a 
striking exhibition of silver, 
ivory, works of art and weap- 
ons which he collected. It is 
tfaovglit that there may still be 
some Indians with enough 
affection for the Raj to want to 
be associated with the appeal 


By John Young 

Speaking amid the marbled 
FaDadian splendours of Rob- 
ert Adam’s masterpiece, Dame 
Jennifer Jenkins, foe trust’s 
chairman, said that 
Kedlestou’s future was not yet 
secure, in spite of a grant of 
£13.5 from the Nation- 
al Heritage Memorial Fund. 

Under a provisional agree- 
ment announced last March, 
Lord Scarsdale has offered foe 
boose, some of its main con- 
tents and the idyllic land- 
scaped park that surrounds it 
to the trust In return the 
famfiy will continue to five in 
the bouse, which stands on 


land it has owned since shortly 
after the Norman conquest. 

The total valne of the gift is 
put at £15 million, and the 
trust has itself provided a 
further £1 minimi from lega- 
cies. Bat it still needs a further 
£2 million for repafrs and 
further acquisitions of con- 
tents. 

The aim is to raise foe 
money within one year, but 
Dame Jennifer declined yes- 
terday to say what would 
happen if foe appeal was a 
faBme. 


College in 
fight for 
survival on 
cash curbs 


Education 


lent 


ffirfcbeck CoDege, London, 
frees a fight for survival after 
the announcement by tire 
University Grants Committee 
lart week cm how funds are to 

be allocated. 

Birkbeck, a coHege of Lon- 
don University, is confronted 
with a cut of 30 per cent in its 
grant because the committee 
haschanged the way in which 
it calculates funding. 

For financing DUTpOSeS, foe 
UGC has decided to value 
part-time students at half the 
rate of those who are foil-time. 
But Bfrfcbeck'S 3,000 students 
are all pan-tune. The college 
had been funded at a level of 
0.8 of foe rate for a foil-time 
student for underg ra dua t e s . 
Finding for postgraduates 
was at foe same rate as for 
other colleges. 

Professor Roderick Flood, 
head of the history depart- 
ment and chairman of the 
research " committee, saijt 
“We cannot see how we could 
survive provide the range 
of courses we do with such a 
severe cut. 

“The UGC took its decision 

without any consultation with 

us, and without any compula- 
tion of the true costs of part- 
time students at a place like 
Birkbedc.” 

The college would lose more 
than £2 million on a budget of 
£75 milli on from the UGC. 

Birkbedc i s the o nly higher 
education institution in the 
country which exists exclu- 
sively for part-time mature 
■s tudents. They finance them- 
selves at a cost of between 
£800 and £1,000 a year. 

Professor Michael Wise, 
chair man of governors, said 
he was hoping the UGC would 
reconsider its decision. “In the 
long ran, the implications of 
this are very serious,” he said. 

The UGCs decision comes 
at a time when all universities 
are being mged to develop 
courses for adults rather than 
simply for 18-year-old school- 
leavers. 


Call for 
new rules 
on 




j Editor 

More precise guided mes for 
medical research that involves 
children are proposed in the 
[aigst report p ubtisl 
day by the Institute 

Ethics. . . 

The recommendations 
would cover about 90,000 
patients who are the subject of 
various trials, from newborn 
babies to teenagers aged 15. 

The purpose is to have 
greater precision in determin- 
ing the risks of research, a less 
intuitive approach and to 
establish a proper partnership 
between medical researchers, 
pare nts and' the children. 

Dr Richard Nichofcou,dep- 
aty-director of the institute, 
said it was necessary to avoid 
an imper so nal a ttitud e. 

Tn compiling the report a 
group of 21 paediatricians, 
obstetricians and other doc- 
tors, lawyers and child care 
specialists examined 1,000 re- 
search projects permitted by 
ethical committees during a 
two-year period. There were 
90 children on average cov- 
ered in each trial. 

But the focus of the. report is 
on ways of making the 
risk/benefit analysts more 
precise. 

The inquiry was undertaken 
because there was concern 
among doctors over some 
confusion about changes in 
guidelines. . 

The dearest were those first 
produced in 1963 by the 
Medical Research Council. 
Those staled that no research 
should be done that would not 
benefit directly foe child tak- 
ing part in the trial. . 

A subsequent gwkfe from 
the Royal College Physicians, 
in 1973 , held foal research wa& 
permissible if the risk was 
negligible compared with the 
risks run in everyday life. 

The third set of principles 
came from the British 
Paediatric Association in 
1 980, which concentrated on a 
favourable risk/benenfit anal- 
ysis.

Fraser to 
close 
5 stores 

By Ronald Faux 
- Sir Hpgh Fraser is to close; 
five more of his retail stores in 
Scotland because of depress 
trading. The Caired frshion 
shops in Oban, Elgin, Inver- 
ness, Perth and Aberdeen will 
dose at foe end of July leaving 
about 30 staff without work. 

Sir Hugh, aged 46, the 
former head of Harrods who 
left the board of the House of 
Fraser in 1982, has dosed 1 1 
of his 17 Scottish stores during 
foe past two years. 

He said yesterday: “It has 
been a bad period for the retail 
trade and I cannot afford to 
keep unprofitable shops 
open” 

A number of the stores 
named after Sir Hugh in 
Glasgow were foul 18 months 
ago with heavy losses. Last 
month there were closures in 
Ayr and Bearsden. 

Sir Hugh became head of 
foe House of Fraser when his 
father. Lord Fraser of 
Allander, died. In the 1960s 
the chain of stores, the largest 
in the country had 16 shops in 
Glasgow alone. 

Sir Hugh’s present interests 
are a knitwear company, a 
perfume firm and an air 
charter business. He also has a 
small newspaper circulating 
free to thousands of homes in 
Glasgow. Last year he paid 
£70,000 for a controlling inter- 
est in Dunbarton football 
club.

Man admits doing 
‘killer portrait’ 


By Peter Davenport 


.. Detectives searching for foe 
killer of Sarah Harper, aged 
TO, were last night questioning 
a man who admitted painting - 
a picture of. the alleged 
murderer. 

He went to foe police after 
foe oil painting, bearing a 
striking resemblance to an 
official artist's impression of a 
man wanted for questioning in 
the case released earlier this 
week, was published in the 
Yorkshire Post yesterday. 

The painting had been sent 
anonymously to the newspar 
per office in Leeds on May 13 
and then handed to detectives. 
Scrawled on the bade of foe 
canvas were the words: *22 
April 1986. Portrait of Sarah 
Harper’s killer'. 

It arrived just seven days 
after Miss Jane H®, a graphic 
artist working for foe newspa- 
per, had completed work on a 
sketch for police of a man seen 
near the guTs home at Moriey 
in Leeds on foe night she 
disappeared, March 26, and 
who was wanted for 
questioning. 

The sketch was based on the 


evidence of a witness and was 
not released to foe public until 
Monday this week. *■' 

In its article yesterday, tire 
Yorkshire Post said that senior 
police officers believed the 
picture could be a self- 
portrait. 

Last night the man leading 
the murder hunt, Det Chief 
Supt Tom Newton, said: “I 
am pleased the Yorkshire Past 
published the article this 
morning because it brought 
forward the man who a dmits 
to having painted the portrait. 

“This man is currently be- 
ing interviewed and is supply- 
ing us with apparently useful 
information which is being 
investigated.” 

The man is said to be from 
the Leeds, area buthis appear- 
ance is not similar to the fece 
in the painting. 

Since the girl was abducted 
and murdered, police have 
interviewed more than 10,000 
people and taken over 1,100 
statements. 

Sarah’s body -was found 
more than 70 miles from her 
home.

Population survey 


Drift to the south continues 


The population of England 
is expected to increase at an 
average annnal rate of 0.16 per 
cent and to reach 48L2 mniioa 
by foe year 2001, according to 
new figures released by the 
Office of Population Censuses 
and Surveys. 

The projections, based oa 
foe population estimates for 
mid-1983, show that comities 
in a broad band across south- 
ern and central England from 
Cornwall to the Wash are 
expected to have a rise in 
population of more than 10 per 
cart between 1983 and 2001. 

Those comities are Corn- 
wall, Somerset, Dorset, Wilt- 
shire, Hampshire, Berkshire, 
Oxfordshire, Buckingham- 
shire, Northamptonshire, 
Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and 
Lfocofesiure. Shropshire is 
also expected to show as 
increase of similar 
proportions. 


By Robin Young 

Smaller population in- 
creases are expected in all the 
other non-metropolitan coon- 
ties except Cambria, Durham, 
Cleveland and Humberside, 
where decreases of op to 5 per 
cent are envisaged. 

The heaviest population 
losses are seen as occonfog in 
the metropolitan counties of 
Tyne and Wear and 
Merseyside, where they are 
expected to exceed 5 per cent. 

Smaller losses are foreseen 
for all the other metropolitan 
comities except West York- 
shire, but at metropolitan 
district level some snail in- 
creases are projected for towns 
such as Bradford, Rotherham, 
Bolton and Kirklees, where 
the excess of births over 
deaths is expected to more 
than offset tike net migration 
which is expected from all 

metropolitan districts. . 

Greater London is seen as 


an area of relatively stable 
population size, bat that is 
expected to include a wide 
variation for individual bor- 
oughs. Only six of the 19 outer 
London boroughs are project- 
ed to contain fewer people in 
2001 than in 1983, whereas in 
inner London only foe dock- 
land boroughs of Newham and 
Tower Hamlets are expected 
to escape popafcrtiaa decline. 

Though most London bor- 
oughs have a natural increase 
due to an excess of bbrtiis over 
deaths, falling populations in 
other hmer boroughs are ex- 
pected to result from contimi-

British Home Stores 
to lose 2,000 jobs 


British Home Stores will cut 
about- 2,000 jobs after a deci- 
sion to withdraw from food 
retailing and create space.fbr 
' more profitable merchandise. 

Mr Dennis Casskfy, -foe ! 
group’s chief executive, said 
yesterday most of the jobs 
were part-time. Voluntary re-' 
drmdanries and transfers to 
other departments would cov- 
er more than half. 

Efforts to cut losses from 
food retailing at 56 stores had 
not been successful enough 
and foe sector would be 
withdrawn by mid-September. 
The move would help to 
overcome a serious lack of 
space for more profitable lines

dogfighting. 

The caretaker of the school 
in Wanstead, Mr Alexander 
Funk, aged 29, said be had no 
knowledge of how a dog died 
before a police raid in October 
last year. He claimed be was 
bolding a poppy ale. 

- Mr. Funk said sketches of 
dogfights in a notebook found 
at the scene were “a sort of 
coat of anus”. 

- Mr Preston,, representing 
himself, aid he attended foe 
sale and gave another man a 
lift back. He said overalls for 
dogfighting and a stopwatch 
found in ms car belonged to 
his passenger. 

A fifth man, Mr Paul Foley, 
aged 37, unemployed, of Dag- 
enham, was acquitted of aid- 
ing and abetting dogfighting 
after a submission that there 
was no case to answer. 

■ Magistrates adjourned the 
hearing until today when two

“If the gas were tamed off

Mr Maim lives in a fiat on

structural stability of tower 
Mocks and other buildings is

Mr Webb said: “Hawkridge 
does not comply with the 
circular. Camden council’s 
structural engineers must act 
on all the available evidence, 
turn off the gas supply or 
evacuate the Wock.” 

There are 8,300 large-pan el

Gossip writer tells 
of 6 jet set snub’ 


Taki Theod oracop ulos, a 
wealthy gossip columnist, 
claimed in foe High Court 
yesterday that be was given a 
jet set snub by Mrs Rosemarie 
Marrie- Riviere, a millionair- 
ess, when he turned up for 
lunch. 

But Mrs Marti e-Rivi ere, 
aged 71, a Swiss-born social- 
ite, who is suing Mr Theo- 
doracopulos, for libel damages 
said it was she who was 
insulted by his presence. 

She said be wrote an article 
in The Spectator about her to 
get his revenge after she had 
turned him away, as an unin- 
vited rad unwelcome guest. 

She also accused him of 
Main washing a friend whom 


she bad invited to lunch at her 
home in Greece in August 
1982. She said Mrs EJeni 
Zopraphos, now dead, was 
wrong in stating that he had 
been invited. 

Mr Theodoracopulos, The 
Spectator's publishers and Mr 
Alexander Chancellor, the for- 
mer editor. all deny libel They 
claim justification and say foe 
article was true. 

Mr Theodoracopulos is also 
counter claiming damage for 
libel over an interview given 
by Mrs Marrie- Riviere to 
Women’s Wear Daily in Octo- 
ber 1982 in which she said his 
article was all lies. 

The hearing continues 
today. 


‘Grave risks’ if 
law centres shut 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 
The former Lord Chancel- denied their rights. He said. 


lor. Lord Elwyn-Jones, 
•warned the Government yes- 
terday that the cash crisis for 
law centres could lead to those 
living in poor conditions “tak- 
ing the law into their own 
hands” 

He said that law centres 
offered advice in such key 
areas as housing, rent, immi- 
gration and benefits to “those 
people most needing it” rad 
enabled them to exercise their 
right to have access to the law. 

Bm a shortage of funds 
meant that many such centres 
faced closure rad people liv- 
ing in poor conditions such as 
parts of Liverpool would be 


that posed grave risks. 

Lord El wyti- Jones was 
speaking in a Radio 4 inter- 
view after the Law Centres 
Federation made an urgent 
plea for more funds, backed by 
Mr Neil Kinnock, foe Labour 
Party leader. 

The Bishop of Liverpool 
the Rt Rev David Sheppard, 
writing in foe Law Centres,' 
Federation bulletin, published 
yesterday, says that “the exis- 
tence of law centres and that 
they should flourish seems to 
me to be one of the very clear 
priorities which I would want 
to argue”. 


Hailsham 
stand on 
legal fees 
attacked 

By Frances Gibb 
Legal Affairs Correspondent 

Relations between foe Bar 
rad foe the Government over 
foe issue of legal aid fees 
deteriorated yesterday after 
Lord Hailsham of St Maryle* 
bone. foe Lord Chancellor, 
rejected claims by judges and 
other peers in foe Lords on 
Wednesday that current fees 
were too low. 

Mr Robert Alexander QC 
said: “We had peer after peer 
with foe greatest experience 
unanimous in saying that the 
rate of pay was too low. The 
Lord Chancellor is still wholly 
unprepared to accept that, 
even allowing for foe fact foal 
be is involved in current 
negotiations." 

The same pay talks, be- 
tween the Bar and the Attor- 
ney General over fees for 
barristers working for foe new 
crown prosecution service, 
have run into trouble with the 
Bar claiming that foe Govern- 
ment is trying to get barristers 
“on the cheap”. 

Mr Alexander said yester- 
day that the Attorney General 
had been offered £60 gross for 
a half-day and £85 for a whole 
day for work in foe mag- 
istrates' courts. At foe same 
time, solicitors had been of- 
fered “up to £250 for a full 
day” • - 

“We recognize that our pay 
should be lower than that for 
solicitors who have far higher 
overheads. But what foe Gov> 
eminent seems to be saying is 
that while barristers with 
some experience ought to do 
this work, if they won*t do h 
for foe money, it will use less 
experienced barristers.” 

The Attorney General had 
made clear in a letter to the 
Bar, which wants fees of £70 
for a half-day and £120 for a 
wbole day, that foe proposed 
fees would be the norm, 
except where travel require 
meats, were exceptional

An Irish woman accused of 
taking part in a plot to explode 
16 bombs in Britain last 
summer had helped escapers 
from foe Maze Prison because 
foe was a . “compassionate” 
person, her defence told foe 
Central Criminal Court 
yesterday. 

Ella O'Dwyer, aged 26, and 
her op-accused, Martina An- 
derson, aged 23, were commit- 
ted republicans motivated by 
a revulsion for imprisonment 
without trial Mr Ivor Rich- 
ard, QC told the court. 

He said the two had es- 
poused human rights issues in 
which they believed strongly. 
“There is nothing wrong in 
foal, they are not on trial for 
their views.” 

. Miss O’Dwyer’s back- 
ground was important, be- 
cause it provided her with the 
ideological motivation for her 
defence to the charge she 
faced: that sire had come to 
Britain to help smuggle men 
on the. ran .from foe 1983 
Maze Prison breakout to safe 
destinations abroad. 

Miss O’Dwyer and Miss 
Anderson, with Patrick 
Magee, aged 35, Gerard 
McDonneL, aged 34, and Peter 
Sherry, aged 50, are accused of 
conspiring to cany out a 
bombing campaign in London 
and coastal retorts last year.

that raairefactraers had made 
“dramatic” improvements in 
safefy recently with the intro- 
ductioa of front-wheel drive, 
radial-ply tyres, anti-lock bra- 
king and (oar-wheel drive. 

They had made cars much 
easier to drive, bat they had 
also caused motorists to travel 
faster and closer to foe mar-

1 The report is based on foe 
findings of a team of indepen- 
dent safety experts which 
identified 47 different safety 
features and scored each car 
on every item. 

The Society of Motor Man- 
■factnrers and Traders said 
releasing detailed information 
of indrridsal models perfor- 
mance in road accidents and 
.'government tests would be 
“mEdfadmg and meaningless**

IT’S COMMON 

100,000 people in the United Kingdom suffer a stroke every year 

IT’S KILLING 

One death in six is due to stroke or its consequences 

IT’S DISABLING . 

There are more than 150,000 disabled stroke survivors in Britain 

IT’S NEGLECTED 

About half of all strokes can be prevented. Only 0.5% of 
the money spent on cancer research and 2.5% of that spent on heart research .7 

is devoted to stroke research 

IT’S TREATABLE 

The right treatment in the right place at the right time can greatly improve 
the quality of life for stroke sufferersu Money is urgently ne«ied 
for research into the prevention and treatment of stroke for the establishment of 
specialist units for the rehabilitation of stroke patients and for the rapid r 

expansion of CHSA’s Volunteer Stroke Scheme and the national network of ’

Channel link 


PM in clash over 
‘heaven on earth’ 
or living hell 


Senators challenged 


Race relations 


POLICIES 


-Airs Thatcher, the Prime Min- 
■ ister. was challenged during 
Commons questions on her 
comment >esterday to the 
Conservative women's con- 
ference that home-owning Brit- 
ain was "a liule bit of heaven on 
earth” compared to Russia. 

There were loud C onservative 
protests when Mr Neil Kinnock. 
Leader of the Opposition, said 
*hc was wrong to have used and 
distorted those words of a 
xourageous woman. Mrs Yelena 
-Bonner (wife of the Soviet 
dissident), for a partisan pur- 
pose. Mrs Thatcher said Britain 
was much better off under the 
Conservaii' es than it was under 
Labour, who liked high laxaiion 
and liked taking money out of 
people's pockets. 

The subject was raised by Mr 
Dennis Canavan (Falkirk West, 
Lab) who said; When the Prime 
Minister got carried away yes- 
terday by her own rhetoric, did 
she forget that in Britain today 
there arc over four million 
people unemployed, over seven 
million people "living on the 
..Official poverty level, over 1.5 
’-'million people waiting for a 
-house and over 750.000 people 
waiting to get into hospital? 

Will the Prime Minister re- 
turn to the real world and realize 
that instead of heaven and hell 
.in Bn tain today the reality of 

- Thatcherism means a living 
hell? {Labour cheers) 

- Mrs Thatcher The phrase 
“Heaven on earth” came from 
Mrs Yelena Bonner when she 
was contrasting life in a free 
society, which is heaven on 
earth io life in a socialist society 
such as Russia from which she 
cante. Heaven on canh she 
found as being owning her own 
home and being able to get the 
operations in the West she could 
flot gel in her own country. 

Mr Kinnock: Does Mrs 
Thatcher recall saying that her 
policy sorts with the family, its 
freedom and well-being, and is 
not there huge inconsistency 
between those words and her 


deeds over seven years of gov- 
ernment which have included 
unemployment for an extra two 
million people, poverty for an 
extra four million people, and 
bad housing and inadequate 
education for millions more? 

What about their well-being 
and does not she think they 
belong to families? 

Mrs Thatcher: The words of 
Mrs Bonner were used to con- 
trast the benefits of a free society 
with the benefits of a socialist 
society in which Mrs Bonner 
lives. Housing is much better 
under this Government than it 
was under Labour — (Labour 
protests) — so are the health 
services, so is the standard of 
living and that is his problem. 
Wc are doing far better than he 
did. 

Mr Kinnock: She compounds 
her dishonesty — (Conservative 
protests) 

The Speaker (Mr Bernard 
Wcaiheriil): Will he rephrase 
that? 

Mr Kinnock: She compounds 



Kinnock: Distortion of 
Mrs Bonner’s words 

her distorted use of the words 
when she gives the impression 
that there are only two alter- 
natives in this world, the Soviet 
society and her society, when 
she knows perfectly well there 
are decent democratic alter- 
natives to both forms of system. 

If the Prime Minister really 
believes housing is better under 
the Conservatives, how does she 


explain the worst record for 
housing starts in this country 
than any time since before the 
second world war? 

Mrs Thatcher On housing. 1.3 
million new homes have been 
built in Britain since 1979. 
904.000 public sector council 
houses and flats have been sold 
to their tenants. 55 per cent of 
blue-collar workers own their 
own homes compared to 40 per 
cent in 1979. 

Mr Jack Straw (Blackburn. 
Lab): When the Prime Minister 
said yesterday it was no co- 
incidence that the countries 
with lower tax produce more 
jobs and lower unemployemcnL 
was she deluding herself or those 
gullible ladies of the Conser- 
vative women's conference? 

Turkey has the lowest tax of 
any OECD country and an 
unemployment rate as high as 
ours and of the 10 countries 
with higher taxes than ours, nine 
have lower levels of unemploy- 
ment. Sensible public spending 
produces jobs while her policies 
destroy jobs. 

Mrs Thatcher He is speaking 
nonsense and he knows iL There 
are far more jobs and far less 
unemployment in the United 
States where personal tax is a 
great deal lower. The Bill now 
before the equivalent of this 
chamber in the United States is 
proposing to make the top tax 
limit in the United States below 
the bottom tax limit here. 

Japan and Switzerland have 
much lower personal tax than 
wc have here, and far more jobs, 
far less unemployment 

Earlier. Mr David Steel. 
Leader of the Liberal Party, 
S3id: The theories she was 
expounding yesterday to the 
Conservative Women’s 
Conference about how to 
reduce unemployment are the 
ones she has been 
implementing for seven years. 
What makes her think they will 
be any more successful in the 
future' than they have been so 
far? 

Mrs Thatcher: In the last three 
years almost one million new 
jobs have been created. That 
would seem to me to be going 
in the right direction. 


Kinnock’s pledge ridiculed 


IMMIGRATION 

To say anything that could 
effect" a " reduction in 
immigration controls would 
’have a very bad effect on race 
relations in Britain. Mrs 
Margaret Thatcher, the Prime 
. Minister said during Commons 
questions when asked about 
the Labour Leader Mr Nefl 
. Kinnock ’s recent comments in 
India. 

. To say that certain Acts 
would be repealed without 
saying what would be put in 
-their place was thoroughly 
irresponsible, she added. 

_'.TShe was replying to Mr John 
-Townend (Bridlington, C) who 


asked: Will she agree that if the 
proposals put forward by the 
Leader of the Opposition in 
India to change immigration 
laws went through this would 
increase immigration from the 
Indian sub-continent and 
would be against the wishes of 
the vast majority of the 
population? 

Mr Harry Greenway (Ealing 
North. C)r. Would she confirm 
that the 1971 and 1981 
immigration Acts are not 
racially discriminatory - 
(Labour protests) - and that 
this Government has no plans 
to repeal them? 

Would she agree that to do 
so would make unemployment 
worse and lead to difficulties 
between groups in this coumry 


of a kind which do not exist at 
present? That is what the plans 
of the Labour Party would 
achieve and that is all 
Mrs Thatcher. I confirm of 
course it is our intention to 
maintain both the 1971 
Immigration Act, with its 
immigration control and the 
1981 Nationality AcL Any 
suggestion to reduce the 
controls on immigration into 
this country would. I believe, 
be highly damaging to good 
race relations.

Commons (9.30): Private 
Member's motion of censure 
on the Prime Minister. 

Lords (Ilk Wages Bill, second 
reading. 


Thatcher 
keen to 
make life 
difficult 


HIPPYCONVOY 


If fresh legislation on criminal 
trespass were needed it would be 
introduced, Mrs Thatcher, the 
Prime Minister, assured Conser- 
vative MP$ who urged her 
during question time to take 
action on the hippy “peace 
convoy". 

1 am only too delighted (she 
said) to do everything we can to 
make life difficult for such 
things as hippy convoys. 

She was replying to Sir Peter 
Emery (Honiton. C) who asked: 
Will she not give a positive 
assurance to the fanning 
community .that the Govern- 
ment will ensure by this time 
next year that there will be 
legislation to make certain that 
innocent people cannot have 
their lives ruined, the farming 
community cannot lose out, and 
that positive steps will be taken 
to ensure that vagrant hippies 
cannot invade in the way they 
have during the last few 
months? 

Earlier, Mr Ralph Howell 
(North Norfolk. Q had asked: 
Bearing in mind the widespread 
reports that she was highly 
impressed with the recent Pan- 
orama programme on Workfare 
in the United States, will she 
now set up a workfare scheme 
for all able-bodied and long- 
term unemployed? 

Such a scheme would make 
life very difficult for hippy 
convoys, would also make it 
veiy difficult for those foreign 
visitors who can claim £78 a 
week as soon as they have 
reported in to a hotel in this 
country, and would stop abuse 
of the welfare system. 

Mrs Thatcher 1 know how keen 
he is on that We are looking at 
the way Workfare works in the 
United Slates. We are finding 
some of the things we have, such 
as the community programme 
and job start, would rank as 
workfare schemes there. Some 
of these things are being ex- 
tended. 

Mr Da rid Heatbcoat-Amery 
(Wells. CY- Is she aware of the 
strength of feeling in my constit- 
uency and others about the 
activities of the so-called hippies 
who show contempt for every 
aspect of organized society ex- 
cept the social security office? 

Would she agree the present 
law is inadequate to cope with 
this threat and give an undertak- 
ing to draft legislation to make it 
possible for people to get them 
off their land and stop it being 
occupied by these travelling 
gangs? 

Mrs Thatcher: The Home Sec- 
retary (Mr Douglas Hurd) in- 
dicated that if the present law is 
inadequate we would have to 
introduce fresh law. In many 
cases the present law is adequate 
and the problem is how to deal 
with people who accept all the 
advantages and benefits of a free 
society and refuse to rise to any 
of its responsibilities. That 
whole question we shall have to 
look at afresh. 


Americans ‘chickening out’ 


TERRORISM 


Mr Roy Mason, former Latov 
Secr etar y of State for Northern 
Ireland, bluntly declared io the 
Commons that it was time 
Presides! Reagan told his own 
people to stop cowering at home 
— chicken tug out as they were — 
to get oat in the world sod 
especially visit Britain, which 
was a safer haven than America. 

There was loud laughter when 
a Conservative MP added: 
“Partfealariy Yorkshire". 

Mr Mason, who is MP for 
Barnsley Central, was cheered 
for his remarks which came 
daring fxc fra nre in which there 
were strong warnings from MPs 
to United States Senators and 
Congressmen against Mocking 
passage of the proposed treaty 
between the USA and the 
United Kingdom for the extra- 
dition of alleged terrorists. 

In questions to Mr Tom King, 
Secretary of State for Northern 
Ireland, MPs from aU sides also 
agreed with Sir Adam Butler, 
former Minister of State for 
Northern Ireland. that the Brit- 
ish people would not readily 
understand or easily forgive 
those senators who voted against 
ratification of the proposed 
treaty. Even the best of friend- 
ship had a price. 

One MP accused the Senators 
and Congressmen who had ex- 
pressed opposition of “hmnbag" 
which was generating dangerous 
anri- American feeling. 

There were calls, too, for the 
American people to demonstrate 
their support for Britain. 

Mr Tom King, in reporting on 
his recent visit to the United 
States, said it would be tragic If 
the two nations of the 

Western world could not agree 
between themselves over 
combating international 
terrorism. 

Mr Robert Adbey (Christchurch, 
O said the opposition of some 
Senators and Congressmen was 



• mm4 

King: Meddled ideas 

being argned strongly on 
con stitu ti ona l grounds. 

That was hsmbeg when pot 
alongside the behaviour of some 
Senators and Congressmen 
when responding to requests 
from Israel for the extradition of 


alleged terrorists. 
Could 


Mr King tell them (be 
said) Oat this voce-grabbing, 
e thni c politics, when set along- 
side the behaviour of cancelling 
tourists and the behaviour meted 
out to Mark Thatcher is gen- 
erating da n gero us anti-Ameri- 
can feeling in this conn try? 

Mr King said be had tried to 
convey some of those feelings 
during his recent visit to the 
United States. 

Referring to the importance 
the Government attached to 
working closely with the United 
States over fighting terro ri sm — 
and the stand that the Prime 
Minister and President Reagan 
had taken at the Tokyo summit 
— he said it would be tragic if the 
two leaders of the Western work! 
coaid not reach agreement them- 
selves over tackling terrorism 
and effective extradition. 

Mr Roy Mason: If America 
mp«n« business in tackling ter- 
rorism, the first thing is that the 
supplementary extradition 
treaty should be ratified. 

What of Noraid brine oot- 


id bring 
lowed in the United States? 


Botlen Price of friendship 


What progress has been made? 

Mr King said there were some 
muddled ideas in die United 
States at present a boot the risks 
involved in terrorism. Someone 
said during his U S visit t hat 
Europe was too dangerous to 
visit tins year, so they might 
travel to Ireland i n st ea d . 

Those were the perceptions 
problems he had tried to 
correct, by emphasizu« .toe 
safety and security of the United 
Kingdom and how welcome 
United States citizens would be 
here as visitors. 

He was grateful for the «- 
tremely robust approach of the 
United States Administration 
and President Reagan's latest 
news conference and br oadc ast, 
which made dear his commit- 
ment to extradition. 

He was also grateful for the 
dear support given for respon- 
sible fund-raising through non- 
terrorist organizations. 

Sir Adam Butler (Bosworth, O 
said there would be immense 
consequences for the Anglo- 
American relationship if the US 
legislature rejected the proposed 
extradition treaty in view of the 
support Britain has green over 
tire Libya raids and in the light 
of the Tokyo conference. To 
quote the American ambas- 
sador. it would reek of selfish- 
ness and hypocrisy. 


Mr King said that was very 
mnch the message to wo sought 
to develop during on Lb nsiL 
He would like » feel ix »*s 
generally recereed-^, . 

Ms Clare Short, (Bmttiagfaam, 
Ladvwood, Labi wanted (o know 
w hv" the Govertnnegt w op- 
posed to the MacBrfde Pna- 
cfples ro eliminate disrnnmatooq 
in employment. 

Mr K l" g said the Gove rnment 
wanted to end discrimination. 
That why the Fair Employ- 
ment Agency and the Fair 
Employment Act had come into 

**TThe problem with (he 
MacBrfde Principles was that 
they conflicted with this 
country's own law, in certain 
respects. Legal advice was that 
they would lead to legal action* 
which would lead to probfctns 
for the companies concerned. 
The problem was that the threat 
behind the principles was 
disinvestment 

So. far fron helping employ- 
ment, they were a threat to all 
employment — Protestant and 
Catholic. ,, 

Mr Peter Archer, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on Northern 
Ireland: The argument (in the 
United States) is said lo am* 
from a reluctance to extradite for 
political offences. This House 

unanimously rejec ts, the sugges- 
tion (hat gangsterism in any 
cause is a political activity. 

Can Mr King help the inter- 
national conranmity to formulate 
criteria which wiH recognize ; the 
legitimate limits of political 
asylum wbBe ensuring the civi- 
lized world offers no hiding 
place for those who live by the 
gun. 

Mr lung: 1 would fike to think 
this House is as good a bastion 
as both US bouses for the 
gfrtwiw right of political 
asylum. 

We are discriminating be- 
tween for those who have genu- 
ine political beliefs and those 
who use terrorist murder, who 
are the ones we cannot tolerate. 


Advice given 
to Belfast’s 
Lord Mayor 

Criticism of the new Lord 
Mayor of Belfast, Mr Sammy 
Wilson, over his views about 
the Anglo-Irish agreement, was 
voiced by Mr Tom King, 
Secretary of State for Northern 
Ireland, during Commons 
questions. 

Mr Jeremy Hayes (Harlow, 
C) had said the newly-installed 
Mr Wilson bad pledged himself 
and. sadly, nis office, to 
opposing the agreement 
All those people who happen 
to oppose the agreement (he 
said) are dancing to the tune of 
the terrorists. 

Mr King told him:The position 
of the Lord Mayor is one 
which should rise above 
political issues of that kind. 
Belfast is a city, above alL in 
which the position of the first 
citizen is one which should 
genuinely lead towards 
reconciliation and better 
relations. 

I hope that the new 
incumbent will, on reflection, 
feel that that is the course for 
which he would wish to be 
remembered.

Sport Aid 
VAT attacked 

The Prime Minister was urged 
during question time to 
compensate the Sport Aid 
chanty for the money it would 
have to pay in VAT by Mr 
Alfred Morris (Manchester, 
Wythenshawe, Lab) who said 
every penny raised in that 
widely acclaimed exercise was 
intended for Africa's poor and 
not fbT the Treasury. 

Mrs Thatcher replied: This 
matter comes up from time to 
time and did under previous 
governments. No government 
has been able to exempt all 
charities from VAT and this 
Government has done more to 
help the funds for charities 
than any other through tax 
reliefs. 


Experiments 

Before the Government could 
introduce any legislation 
concerning human embryo 
research it would have to take 
the many differing views on the 
subject into account, Mrs 
Thatcher, the Prime Minister, 
said, during Commons 
questions when replying to Sir 
John Biggs-Davison (Epping 
Forest C) who asked her, 
having supported Mr Enoch 
Powell's Bill. to outlaw such 
experiments.

Many benefits for 
whole economy 


CHANNEL TUNNEL 

The nation could not avoid the 
challenge to change, if it was to 
retain vital competitiveness. Mr 
John Moore, Secretary of State 
for Transport, said m his first 
speech to MPs since taking up 
his Cabinet post two weeks ago. 
when he moved the second 
reading of the Channel Tunnel 
BilL 

In the past, the country had 
not welcomed change, prefer- 
ring instead to cling to what it 
already had. he said. 

But in recent years, there had 
been a remarkable change in 
attitudes and a new recognition 
of what the modern world 
required. 

The Channel tunnel now, 
after the laying of that crucial 
foundation, would provide 
opportunities for expansion and 
growth. 

Evetyone could see the im- 
mediate short-term boost for 
jobs and wealth — £700 million 
in equipment and materials for 
the building of the tunnel and, 
perhaps, another £200 million 
for British RaiL 

The benefits, however — 
which greatly outweighed the 
costs — would be vastly greater 
and longer term than that sort of 
thing. 

Nowhere had the project 
aroused stronger passions than 



Moore: Britain most Due 
the challenge 

in Kent Geographically, it bad 
to begin there. 

The whole country stood to 
benefit from an efficient trans- 
port link for its people and 
products. 

There would be specific 
opportunities for economic 
growth in Kent These were 
matters for the local authorities, 
who needed to discharge their 
duties with sensitivity. The 
treasures and beauty of the 
county had to be preserved. 

He could not believe that 
sufficient laud could not be 
made available, where appro- 
priate. for economic develop- 
ment to take place. 

The Government would ar- 
range for their statutory advisers 
to be consulted as appropriate— 
the Nature Conservancy Coun- 
cil. the Countryside Commis- 
sion and English Heritage. 

Although great stress had 
been laid on possible environ- 
mental damage. little had been 
said about the possible dramatic 


environmental improvements 
the tunnel might bring, such as 
reductions, in Kent, of heavy 
lorry traffic. 

Inevitably there would be an 
environmental impact locally, 
but it could and would be 
contained. By providing direct 
rail freight links with the 
Continent many lorries would 
be removed from Britain’s 
roads. 

The unique qualities of 
British institutions, history and 
culture, recognized the world 
over, were not threatened by 
contact with other European 
countries. To improve the 
physical connection was plain 
good sense- It would offer 
unprecedented opportunities 
for business expansion, cultural 
enrichment . and individual 
travel and could stimulate a 
whole new era of adventure 
and achievement for this 
country. It was m that light 
that the Channel tunnel 
became an opportunity and not 
a threat 

Mr Robert Hughes, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
transport, moved an 
amendment calling on the 
House to decline to give the 
Bill a second reading. The 
amendment complained that 
the Government had failed to 
establish adequate machinery 
to ensure the maximum United 
Kingdom content of 
employment and materials 
during the construction phase 
of the tunnel and to develop 
plans fully to equip British Rail 
or to diversify potential 
benefits in accordance with 
regional economic policy. 

It also accused the 
Government of not considering 
the creation of a Channel office 
of fair trading to ensure that 
freedom of choice would be 
maintained for cross-Channel 
custom for freight and 
passenger traveL 

There is a need (he said) to 
diversify the benefits offered by 
the tunnel. There is a strange 
paradox in this debate. Those 
furthest away believe they will 
not get the benefits and those 
who are closest either say the 
hassle will be too much or they 
do not warn the benefits. 

The massive investment 
going into the South East for 
the tunnel and the associated 
infrastructure, such as roads, 
should not be allowed to act 
totally to the detriment of areas 
north of Watford. The benefits 
should be diversified. 

Mr Peter Rees (Dover. C) 
said he wanted to emphasise 
the impact of the tunnel on 
East Kent where there was 
deep and legitimate concern. 

If the basis of the case for the 
uinnel was that there should be 
competing means of crossing 
the Channel then the 
competition between the tunnel 
and the ferries must be free and 
fair. 

Given fair competition, he 
had been assured that the 
ferries would compete 
successfully aud their 
confidence had been 
demonstrated by the orders for 
n £w s **ips and the investment 
of the Dover Harbour Board. 


Difficult 

problems 

involved 

ULSTER 


Total integration of Ulster with 
Great Britain would raise very 
difficult issues indeed. Mr Tom 
King. Secretary of Slate for 
Northern Ireland, told the 
Conservative Mr Ian Gow who 
this week launched the Friends 
of the Union. 

Mr Gow (Eastbourne) had said 
during question time exchanges: 
In the absence of any prospects 
for devolution in Northern Ire- 
land on a basis that would be 
widely acceptable throughout 
the community, there is a 
growing body of opinion in the 
Province that believes the way 
forwatd now is through integra- 
tion which would offer proper 
safeguards for the minority. Will 
Mr King confirm that integra- 
tion is not inconsistent with the 
Anglo-Irish Agreement? 

Mr King: The Government has 
made clear it is committed to 
seeking to achieve devolved 
govern mem in the Province. I 
do not accept Mr Gow's initial 
premise that there is an absence 
of any possibility of achieving 
that 

I very much hope it will be 
possible to six down and discuss 
ways in which this can be 
achieved. 

While obviously the Govern- 
ment is always willing to con- 
sider ways in which legislation 
in this House might be handled, 
the idea of carrying that forward 
into some concept of total 
integration would raise very 
difficult issues indeed 


King’s hint 
about talks 
in Ulster 


ACCORD 


There was a growing feeling in 
Northern Ireland that what was 
needed was talks without 
preconditions. Mr Tom. King, 
Secretary of State for Northern 
Ireland, said during Commons 
questioning. He hoped for 
some development in that 
respect. 

Mr Michael McNair-WUson 
(Newbury. O had said: If be 
was persuaded that the .Anglo- 
Irish agreement was not only 
an affront to the Unionist 
parties but was blocking the 
way to any round table talks 
between all the parties in 
Northern Ireland, can I hope 
he would show flexibility in 
putting the treaty to one side? 
Mr King: There is now a 
growing recognition, shared by 
leaders of all the churches in 
Northern Ireland, that what we 
need is talks. Those talks 
should be without 
precondition. We must sit 
down and seek a way forward 
something I have been urging 
for some time. 


Peers deplore library ban on newspapers 


WAPPING DISPUTE 


Two of the 14 Labour authori- 
ties accused of boycotting News 
International papers — The 
Times. The Sunday 77mer. The 
Sun and the A’ews of the World 
— have denied they are guilty. 
Lord Belstead, the Government 
spokesman, said during ques- 
tions in the House of Lords. 

Replying to Lord Harris of 
Greenwich (SDPj about the 
Government’s reaction to (he 
papers being withdrawn from 
public libraries. Lord Belstead 
said: The Government sees no 
justification for this action. 

Mr Richard Luce, the Min- 
ister for the Arts, has received 
complaints about 14 Labour 
authorities. He has written to 
them asking whether the com- 


plaints are true and if so, how 
they reconcile their actions with 
their duties under the Libraries 
and Museums Act 1964. ~ 

He wifi consider what farther 
action to take in the light of then- 
replies. 

Lord Harris of Greenwich: How 
many of the authorities have 
replied? The minister has 
substantial powers under the 
Act and it is disappointing to 
some of us that these powers 
have not been exercised. 

This type of totalitarian 
behaviour by local authorities, 
taking newspapers out of public 
libraries because they dislike the 
proprietor, is wholly unworthy 
of people involved in local 
government administration in 
this country. 

Lord Belstead: Replies have 
been received from three of the 
local authorities and two of the 


14 authorities concerned have 
made clear that this position 
does not apply to them and that 
is encouraging. 

TTictc are powers io enable 
tne Government to move in this 
matter. 

Lord Boyd -Carpenter (Ck In the 
unhappy event of an unsatisfac- 
tory answer from authorities 
behaving badly, does the min- 
ister have powers to act and if 
not will he take them? 

Lord Belstead: There is power to 
act. 

Lord Brockway (Lab): Although 
I have replaced The Times by 
The Daily Telegraph - (laugh- 
ter) - many of us are all in 
favour of these newspapers be- 
ing placed tn public libraries. 

But would he not agree that 
, Afow/Ig Star, which is 
excluded from many of these 
libraries, should have the same 


right, even though we differ 
from it. to be read in public 
libraries? 

l4Jid Belstead: l hope his choice 
or reading does not mean he is 
veering dangerously to the right. 
(Laughter) His point is im- 
portant and on behalf of the 
Government I say «c deplore 
any attempts to ban particular 
books or newspapers for which 
there is a demand from public 
libraries. 

Lady David (Lab): I should like 
to make clear the position of the 
Labour Party. The local govern? 
ment committee of the National 
Executive Committee sent out 
an advice nous in February to 
I°j Labour groups, authorities 
and trade unions saying that 
keeping out newspapers was 
“"desirable censorship. 

Lord Belstead: We welcome that 

news.

faith. 4 . This- certainly helps to relate 


Faith rests in 
events afterward 

“Fust, though we believe in 
the Resurrection as ‘some- 
thing that happened 1 , some- 
thing to which feith was a 
response,, hot something, 
which faith, created, we have 
to remember 'that no one ‘saw* ' 
it happen. The dischries^expe- : 
riences were all. or the risen 
Christ, not of hxs rising. 

_ “Not one of the canonical 
Gospels offers any account of 
the event itself only of what 
followed. Faith in the Resur- 
rection, therefore, rests oh the 
events which happened after- • 
wards,, and which provide, 
grounds for that feith.' . . ; 

' “Tuntinglb the two classes' 
of e v ents associated in- the. 
Gospel record with- the .first 
Easter, ..we . begin, withrl-the 
stories* of the .empty tomb/ln 
the ' first .Jhihe jCfospels the 
message' oftfea^Usj^ the - 
sepulchre relates specifically 1 
to this." ‘-He is ' BOt he^ .^p 5 
risen.’ ; • ••-.. -■ 

- “In JoM the «uu»ctiott is 
less explicit but aearenougji. r 
Nevertheless aH four Gospels, 
but especially Luke and John," 
emphasize: that the empty, 
tomb was noronly something 
announced by angels but a fact 
observed by human eye-wh- 
nessesr in Matthew and Mark 
by the women; in Luke (ac- 
cording to one. textual, tradi- 
tion) by Pieter , also; and in 
John by Peter and the beloved . 
disciple as well. . . . 

“The angels are.describedin 
Mark and Matthew as specifi- 
cally inviting the women to 
see for themselves;, in Luke, 
the women are said to have 
alreadymade the discovery; in 
Johrtj- Peter^ and the other . 
disciple verify Mary 
Magdalene’s conjecture before 
the angels appear, and note the 
grave-clothes, which einpba- - 
aze the fact that the body is no 
longer present: ! 

“Ail this suggests strongly 
that -the statement -that the : 
tomb was . empty is- more 
fundamental than the ac- 
counts orangdic appearanote,. 
which serve rather to explain 
the observed &ct as due to the 
divine miracle of resurrection 
and not to some, other reason. 

“That there were other pos- 
sible - explanations' is 
recognised in the New Testa- 
ment itself! Maty Magdalene’s

Toy money for 
aircraft ‘was 
charity stunt* 

A man alleged to have flown 
a light aircraft to France after 
paying for it: with Monopoly 
money pleaded guilty yester- 
day when he appeared before 
magistrates for summary trial. 

The case was adjourned for 
a month by the bench rat 
Ecdes, Greater Manchester, to 
allow social inquiry reports to 
be prepared- ■; - 

Robert Grant aged 59, of 
Leicester Road, Salford, 
Greater Manchester, admitted 
three offences - 
He is charged with taking a 
Cessna aircraft from. Barton, 
airfield without consent or 
authority; taking a BMW car 
from- -Stanmngton Morpeth, 
Tyne and Wear, alto without 
consent or authority; and 
driving without insurance. 

Aft the offences took place 
on May 24 , 1986. Magistrates 
agreed to deal with the case * 


unknown .agents have taken 
the. body, away (John 203). 
Matthew tells ofa Jewish story 
that ’ Jesus’s own followers 
-were the ones responsible 
(Matt. 27. 62-66; 28. 11-15). 
The mention of such theories 
in the context of the true 
Christian story is-dearly in- 
tended to put them our of 
court; but why were the theo- 
ries necessary, unless- there 
was an identifiable tomb and 
'it was empty? ■ 

On the assumption that , the 
empty tomb was part of. the 
earliest Easter preaching, an- 
other important consideration 
oomes -into play. If opponents 
of Jesus had removed the 
body, then when the: Easier 
message was first proclaimed 
they bad decisive evidence 
with which to discredit it. 
Why did they not do so? 

“If Jesus's followers were 
responsible ' ft has to be as- 
sumed not only that they were 
lying, but that they were able 
to fie with such conviction as 
to convert thousands, and, 
more unbelievably still, that, 
they were prepared to suffer 
and . die joyfully for their 
fabrication. Against such a 
hypothesis of fraud or reli- 
gious psychosis the whole 
ethic and character of the New 
Testament are a sufficient and 
eloquent witness. 

“It has already been noted 
that the Easter stories suggest 
significant differences m Our 
Lord’s body after resurrection. 
This- certainly helps to relate 
our own resurrection, where 
foe question of an empty tomb 
does not arise, more intelligi- 
bly to that of Jesus. 

“The faith which is the 
teaching of the universal 
Church. and which this House 
reaffirms as the teaching of the 
Church of England, -is this:, 
that our Lord truly experi- 
enced human death; that that 
state of death was ended and 
wholly overcome; that there 
was 'genuine continuity be- 
tween his dying self and his 
risen self; that the mode of 
existence of the Risen Lord 
was one -in which his foil 
human nature and identity, 
bodily,. mental and spiritual, 
were present and glorified for 
eternal blessedness; and that 
his -mode of existence was 
observed and experienced, 
and. its essential secret 
grasped,' by numbers of his 
dtseiptes . fn" personal 
-encounter.!.- . . . i . , . ~ 

■ “This faitfiTn Christ’s R«S- 
tirretfiidn. is the faith of every 
Tnemberofthisrllbitsfe Oifthe 
tuiestiafi^ ^ whether* as,a rejsnft 
ofthis divine act of resurrect

recognize thatsdiolarship can 
offer no conclusive demon- 
stration; and the divergent 
views to be found ; among 
scholars of standing are re- 
flected in the. thinking ' of 
individual bishops. . . • • 

•"But all of us accept first 
that belief that the tomb was 
empty can be held with full 
intellectual integrity; second- 
ly, that this is the understand- 
ing of the witness of Scripture 
which is generally redeved in 
the universal Church; and 
thirdly, that this House ac- . 
knowledges and upholds this 
belief as expressing the feith of

its historic teaching, affirming 
that in the resurrection life the 
material order is redeemed, 
and the fullness of human 
nature is taken Into God’s 
eternal destiny for his 
creation.

in glory. * Far beyond our 
understanding are the realities 
behind the words "begotten, 
not made’ or ‘proceeding from 
the Father.’ Such words are 
not descriptions of known 
‘fects’ but terms chosen pri- 
marily to safeguard important 
features of what is seen by the 
Church as revealed in Scrip- 
ture, and to exclude mistaken 
ahd misleading ideas." 

“The actual Resurrection of 
Christ too, as we considered 
earlier, was a mystery hidden 
from human eyes. In tbe same 
way the Virginal Conception 
and Birth of Christ were 
acknowledged from the earli- 
est times as divine mysteries. 
“But just as the Resurrection, 
though unseen and undesir- 
able. is ‘affirmed as objective 
feel because Jesus was dead 
and is alive, so the Virginal 
Conception, though equally a 
.divine mystery, js also af- 
firmed in the Creeds of Objec- 
tive ' fact because ' the 
Scriptures . relate that Jesus 
had no human father. When, 
therefore, the Creeds are said, 
it is naturally assumed that 
these words, to whatever other 
truths they point, will be 
intended 16 include this par- 
ticular assertion of feet. 

.- “Against tbe belief that 
Jesus was in feet born without 
a human father have been 
urged considerations such as 
The following,": the belief fenot 
widely attested in the New 
' Testament; the' Virginal Con- 
ception features unequivocal- 
• Vyiontylh-the opening chapters 
of Matthew ^nd Luke, which 
jane not the earliest Gospels. 

Regard to legend 
and pagan stories 

“In each case there are 
literary critical grounds for 
regarding these chapters as 
k^end. Other scholars have 
found the origin in- pagan 
stories of divinely begotten 
heroes. 

; “The truth or otherwise of 
the- claim that Jesus was 
conceived by a divine creative 
act without a human father is, 
in any case, something that 
could never be settled by any 
testimony human beings 
could supply. In that respect it 
needs to be recognized that a 
critical weigbiRg of New Tes- 
tament indications is bound lo 
be an inconclusive and even 
marginal exercise. 

- “In the end the decision has 
lobe a matter-of feith. Bui ft is 
not without, value to point out 
that - the arguments at the 
critical level are by no means 
decisive, even so fer as ihey 
go. In particular, the character 
of the two primary accounts 
can be seen on analysis to 
-leaye. the. tradition more 
strength than some scholars 
have been ready to allow. 

The fullest interpretation is 
offered in Luke 1 JO-35. The 
child is to be named after one 


of Israel's greatest deliverers, “The Virginal Conception, 
and to inherit tbe throne of on this view, is the Church’s 
another. He will bring in the historically chosen symbol for 


eternal golden age of deliver- 
ance for the nation, promised 
for the end of time, and his 
reign will fulfil literally the 
Psalmists’ predictions of an 
everlasting king of righteous- 
ness. As such he win bear the 
messianic title *Son of the 
Most High' or ‘Son of GocL* 

. “All this, indeed, might be 
achieved within the natural 
order of procreation. But this 
child is to be unique. His birth

band and wife. He is to be 
called ‘holy’ and ‘Son of God* 
for a profounder reason, that 
tie will have no human fether. 

“There is no indication 
from the early centuries that 
beliefin the Virginal Concep- 
tion was used as a proof to 
support the doctrine of the 
divinity of Christ Its main 
thrust theologically was to 
stress the reality of Jesus's 
humanity. He did not, as some 
heretics alleged, simply de- 
scend from heaven and enter 
the : world through Mary’s 
womb in a kind of pretence. 
He did truly grow for nine 
months, in her .body before 
being delivCTed. ‘ . ■ 

• “This rquestibn Of. a -new 
beginning is central to con- 
temporary discussion - of the 
theological significance of the 
Virginal Conception. Jesus's 
Sonship in relation to God the 
Father is of a unique charac- 
ter, distinct in kind from the 
adoptive relationship we re- 
ceive through him. 

“Jesus is also the ‘Second 
Adam’, the Head of a new rape 
of God's children in the Spirit. 
At the same time rt is essential 
that he should be truly and 
folly human, in aO points like 
we arc, sin only excepted He 
-truly grows m the womb, ; 
experiences birth and all the 
helpless dependence of infan- 
cy, he matures into adulthood, ! 
shares our life of feeling, | 
thought and spirit, knows 
pleasure and pain, joy and 
sorrow, and eventually passes , 
through a truly human death. 1 

“It is this need to insist on 
the completeness and authen- 
ticity of Christ’s humanity : 
which has led some Christian 
thinkers in modem times to 
question whether the divine 
eternal Son can have become 
incarnate through a vaginal 
conception. They ask whether 
any human being created by 
such a divine act could be ; 
authentically one with us in 
our lull humanity, and rightly 
point out that if he is not then ; 
it is the Church’s central belief * 
in the Incarnation which has 
been destroyed 

Woman given

A young woman was jailed

in the murder of i magistrate's 
daughter and the attempted 
murder of the magistrate as

Mr Justice Murray said she

award him ail bis costs after a 
27-day libel action against j

Their raid on the hunting 
duke's burial plot at Badmin- 
ton parish church, Avon, 
failed- when they were only 10 
inches from the coffin because 
a shovel broke, Mr Ian Glen, 
for foe prosecution, said. 

Instead, foe group desecrat- 
ed the churchyard and wails 
by painting slogans and stolea 
temporary wooden cross 
marking foe grave of the duke, 
who was buried about 10 
months earlier. 

The raiders included a Lon- 
don man and a West Midlands 
man on trial yesterday, Mr 
Glen alleged. They face 
charges arising from foe 
descralion of foe churchyard 
on December 26, 1 984, which 
they have denied. 

The Judge, Mr Justice 
Hutchison, ruled that foe ac- 
cused should not be identified. 

The West Midlands man 
faces a further charge alleging 
criminal damage to church, 
boundary walls and stones at 
the churchyard. He has also 
denied this. ~- 

Mr Glen said the London 
man had pleaded guilty earlier 
to a charge alleging criminal 
damage to foe church and

them with paint. 

The trial continues today.

Dali tops house sale of 
James’s Surrealists 


Christie's decision to sell 
some feirty recherche Surreal- 
ist and Neo-Romamic paint- 
ings at a country house sale 
paid off yesterday at foe week- 
long sale of foe Edward James 
Collection at West Dean Park, 
Sussex. 

The morning sale of pic- 
tures and drawings raised 
£842,501, with only four lots 
unsold. 

The top price, predictably, 
went to a “Paranoiac Face" 
painted by Salvador Dali in 
1935, which fetched £205,200 
(estimate £50-70.000). Ed- 
ward James was not just a 
collector, but a friend and 


patron of foe artists whose 
work made up this sale. 

During foe late 1930s James 
was concerned That Dali was 
wasting his talents on saleable 
works in order to maintain his 
extravagant lifestyle, so he 
suggested taking Dali's entire 
output in return for a generous 
allowance. 

At Spink’s, the first Naval 
Gold Medal awarded for the 
Battle ofTrafalgar to appear at 
auction, sold to a London 
dealer for £24,840 (estimate 
£20,000). Its recipient. Cap- 
lain Bullen, commanded 
HMS Britannia at foe Battle of

Yesterday, marked four 
years to the day since Israel 
invaded Lebanon, and almost 
- a year since foe bulk of its 
Anny withdrew, leaving foe 
SLA to patrol the wild country 
along the frontier. 

- Local political leaders can? 
not afford to agree with Israeli, 
leaders that the SLA rone is 
successful m protecting the 
northern border from attack. 
To doso would mean losing 
local support ; 

.. Nevertheless, the Shia AmaJ 
group, which controls foe area 
around Tyre very firmly, is 
.determined to make sure tha t 
neither the Palestinians nor 
foe Islamic resistance, better 
known as foe-.HezboHah, use s 
foe area to launch attarfo 
against Lsrad. 

In Tyre yesterday Mr Abdul 
Majid Saleh, the elected 
southern representative on 
Antal's 12-man Politburo, was 
particularly angry at the idea 
that the 80,000 Palestinians in 
the area could Use their refu- 
gee camps as a base. 

“The attacks are a call to the 
Israels : to come back,** he 
said. “The Palestinians do not 
care about that became this is 
not their land. Jt ’is our land, 
and we will not let the 
Palestinians bring the Israelis 
back.” 

He was proud of what Amal 
had. done to make sooth

EEC procedures for shifting 
mountams of paperwork with- 
in the- Commission, already 
burdened by delays, ground to 
a temporary bah yesterday] 
when many of its 1,000 trans- 
lators walked out. . 

The one-day strike, which 
affected only written transla- 
tions; was in protest against 
the Commission's failure to 
provide adequate facilities un- 
der the. one roof . 

At a demonstration outside 
the Commission, translators 
claimed cramped facilities had 
become more crowded with 
the accession of Spain, and 
Portugal this year. They said 
the Commission had ordered 
only costly, inconvenient ren- 
ovations despite promising re- 
housing; • 

The Commission says the 
translators will be propert y re- 
housed by J 992. ■ 


V, r, 


New York (Reuter).— Nine- 
ty minutes before the space 
shuttle Challenger lifted off on 
its doomed flight on January 
2& top rocket engineers -ad- 
vised against its launching 
because of ice, CBS television 

’—news said. * 

A Rockwell Corporation en- 
gineer was quoted as describ- 
ing the ice to superiors: “Some 
of the close-ups of the. stair- 
wells look like something out 
of (the film) Dr Zhivago. 
* ^ There's sheets of icicles hang- 

jj^j pveiywhere.'.Tiie'big con- 


cern is nobody knows wnai 
the hell is going to happ 
when the thing lights off.** 
Another Rockwell official 
outlined bis company's oppo- 
sition to hunch: “We are still 
of the position foat.it's a bit of 
Russian roulette, that you*H 
probably make it Five out of I 
six times you do, , playing' 
Russian roulette.* 

On Wednesday a presiden- 
tial commission briefed the 
families of the seven crew- 
members who died in the 
accident on its fmding^ 


feted too muefa fiom both of 

them." 

He reached over to tap the 
artificial leg of a close col- 
league, Mr Abu Ahmed al- 
Jamal. “He lost his foot when 
-he was hit by a Palestinian 
bullet. A year later bis daugh- 
ter was lolled in air raids. We 
do things for os, for Lebanon 
and nobody efce.” 

Mr Abdul Majid Saleh was 
not worried by foe feet that the 
iaige refugee camp of Rash- 
idiyah, south ofTyre, was said 
to be controlled by Mr Yassir 
Arafat's PLO supporters and 
well supplied with money. 
“They are not as strong as we 
are^We can control them." 

While Amal was keeping 
control outside the SLA area, 
it was encouraging resistance 
inside it, he said. 

Mr Daoud Daoud, the 
Amal leader in the south, was 
equally sure that the Palestin- 
ians were under control and 
that the Hezbollah were an 
insignificant force: “Who are 
they?" he asked with a smile. 

But he raid Amal would not 
use the rocket-propelled gre- 
nades being used in the area. 
His men were only lightly 
armed because heavy weapons 
would bring a reply from the 
Israeli Army. “We don't want 
to fight against an Army." 

Nevertheless, Amal was do- 
ing all it could to resist 
continued Israeli occupation 
in the SLA area. “Israel is 
leaving the fire under foe 
ashes,” he said. The resistance 
would smoulder and grow and 
would even spQl over the 
border again if IsraeTs support 
for the SLA did not end.

Wary Israelis 
celebrate unity 
of Jerusalem 

Jerusalem - Israel yester- 
day marked the 19th anniver- 
sary of foe reunification of 
Jerusalem, the eastern part of 
which was captured from 
Jordan in the first days of foe 
1967 Six Day War (David 
Bernstein writes) 

Special precautions were 
taken to ensure that the day 
passed peacefully, including a 
pre-emptive raid by security 
forces on the An-Najah Uni- 
versity in Nablus on Wednes- 
day, when 20 students were 
arrested and Palestinian na- 
tionalist literature seized. 

Police also banned a 
planned march yesterday 
through Jerusalem's ancient 
Muslim quarter by the ex- 
treme nationalist Gush 
Emunim Jewish settlers' 
movement 


Italy turns blind eye to snap vote 
in Parliament favouring PLO 


The Italian Government has 
deri de d to ignore a motion 
calling for the recognition of 
the Piuestine Liberation Orga- 
nization as sole representative 
of the Palestinian people. 


The success of the far left in 
obtaining support for the mo- 
tion from a parliamentary 
rump of deputies was embar- 
rassing becanse it came late on 
Wednesday Bight at the dose 
of a formal debate on foreign 
affairs, which was supposed to 
be a display of general consen- 
sus on foe conduct of interna- 
tional policies. 

The motion was pat by 
Signor Mario Capanna, the 
leader of the Proletarian Dem- 
ocratic Party, who recently 


From Peter Nichols, Rome 

met Colonel Gadaffi while 
visiting Libya. 

Understanding that no vote 
would follow the discussion, 
many government supporters 
had left the Hoose. 

The main surprise then 
foUowed.The Communists 
agreed to sapport foe extreme 
left and helped rany foe 
motion by a majority of 13 
votes. 

Signor Ginfio Andreotti, the 
Foreign Minister, who is going 
next week to the United 
States, where be is expected to 
make an important speech on 
the relations between the US 
and Italy, had opened foe 
parliamentary debate on Tues- 
day with a speech marked by 


objectivity in which he never 
mentioned the PLO. 

Moreover, his speech was 
designed to seek the greatest 
measure of agreement both 
among the five coalition par- 
ties and the left-wing 
Opposition. 

Some of the Government's 
supporters justified their leav- 
ing the House before the 
closing of the session by 
pointing out that they had 
been involved in the presiden- 
tial party marking the 40th 
anniversary of foe foundation 
of the Republic. 

But as one Socialist deputy 
put it: “We might one day 
come back and find that 
Parliament has declared war**. 


Fear of 
civil war 

haunts 

Haiti 

Port-au-Prince (Reuier) — 
Two days of anti-government 
riots have pushed Haiti to foe 
brink of civil war, foe 
country's military leader said 
yesterday. 

An army sergeant was shot 
dead, and witnesses said ma- 
chete-wielding gangs smashed 
cars in residential areas here 
on Wednesday, demanding 
money from passers-by. 

Troops fired into the air 
after demonstrators demand- 
ing foe resignation of three 
ministers built barricades in 
three slum areas of foe capital, 
burnt tyres and wrecked cars, 
reporters and photographers 
said. 

The impoverished Caribbe- 
an state's leader, Lieutenant- 
General Henri Nampby, said 
on television and radio yester- 
day: “We have arrived at a 
situation involving fires, bar- 
ricades . . . nearly a civil war. 
The country is on foe verge of 
anarchy.” 

General Nampby, who 
heads the National Council 
that took over after President 
Jean -Claude Duvalier fled 
into exile in February, blamed 
the unrest on unidentified 
politicians with negative 
ideologies. 

The crowds demanded that 
General Namphy dismiss foe 
National Council member 
and Interior Minister, Mr 
William Regala; the Secretary 
of State for Information, Mr 
Aubelin Jolicoeur and the 
Finance Minister, Mr Lesly 
Delaiour. 

Radio reports said protest- 
ers had threatened to blow up 
two bridges by this morning if 
the three were not sacked. 

There were protests in six 
other towns, including Elstere.

Tutu throws down the 
gauntlet over ban 
on Soweto meetings 


From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 

Souih Africa faces the pros- Grange’s edict yesterday, and 
pect of mounting violence and it was not clear whether they 
growing pressure on the rand intended to risk clashes with 


in the wake of government 
' "moves to ban all meetings and 

• demonstrations linked to the 
tenth anniversary on June 16 
of the outbreak of the Soweto 

. uprising. 

. Bishop Desmond Tutu, the 
. Anglican Bishop of Johannes- 

- burg, threw down a gauntlet to 
. the Government yesterday, 
.saying he would instruct his 

• clergy to proceed with the 
holding of commemorative 
services on June 16. and that 

r he himself would take part. 

Under a notice issued on 
: .Wednesday by the Minister of 
. Law and Order. Mr Louis Le 
. ’ Grange, all meetings “in any 
.building wheresoever in the 
_ .Republic" convened to com- 
memonaie the riots of 1976 are 
~ banned until the end of the 
' month. 

Outdoor gatherings of a 
political character are already 

- prohibited. Wednesday’s ban 
also covers any meeting held 

r to commemorate the adoption 

on June 26 1955 of the 
Freedom Charter, which be- 
came the manifesto of the 
outlawed African National 
.Congress. 

The charter is also sub- 
scribed to by the still-legal 
United Democratic Front, a 
' loose alliance of more than 
600 anti-apartheid organ- 
.. izations. 

The UDF and other groups 

• had planned rallies on and 
-'.around June 16 and June 26. 

• They were still digesting the 

• implications of Mr Le 


the police by defying iL 

The ban would appear not 
to affect plans for a general 
strike on June 16. This has 
been called for by the UDF, 
the Congress of South .African 
Trade Unions, and the Na- 
tional Education Crisis Com- 
mittee, which brings together 
black parents, teachers and 
schoolchildren. 

Meanwhile, the rand has 
collapsed from about 50 cents 
to the US dollar a few weeks 
ago to about 40 cents, dose to 
the level it touched in Septem- 
ber after a number of big 
international banks called in 
short-term loans to the South 
African Government. 

The rand's foil is seen as 
reflecting pessimism about the 
Government’s ability to de- 
fuse violence and unrest, and 
mounting pressure in America 
and Europe for stiffer eco- 
nomic sanctions, which Pre- 
toria itself seems to accept as 
inevitable. 

After faffing to below 40 
cents yesterday morning, the 
rand recovered somewhat on 
rumours that the Reserve 
Bank might announce new 
exchange controls to prop up 
the currency. The bank does 
not have sufficient foreign 
currency to weather a long run 
on the rand. 

In another development, 
Mr Le Grange told Parliament 
in Cape Town that he intend- 
ed to re impose curbs on press 
and television coverage of 
unrest of the kind which were 


in force during the state of 
emergency from July 21 last 
year to March 7 this year. 

He would have the power to 
do this under the Public Safety 
Amendment Bill, which the 
Government is pushing 
through Parliament- 

Delaying action by the Col- 
oured and Indian chambers of 
the Parliament may mean, 
however, that the Bill will not 
become law before June 16, as 
the Government wanted. 

• MBABANE: Three blacks 
shot dead near here on Tues- 
day were killed by a profes- 
sional hit squad from outside 
the country, according to the 
Swazi Police Commissioner, 
Mr Sandile Mdziniso (Reuter 
reports). 

A police spokesman said all 
three were members of the 
ANG Mr Mdziniso did not 
name the country involved in 
the raid. 

On Wednesday the South 
African Press Association re- 
ported that the raiders could 
have been from South .Africa. 

Swaziland, which has a non- 
aggression pact with South 
Africa, has expelled dozens of 
ANC members in the past 
three years, but this week's 
incident was the first time an 
ANC member had been killed 
in the country. 

In Pretoria, a South African 
Defence Force spokesman 
said the force did not com- 
ment on speculation and ru- 
mours, especially against a 
background of whai he called 
ANC attempts to create ten- 
sion between South Africa and 
Swaziland 


Pretoria facing tougher sanctions 


A US Congress sub-com- 
mittee has approved a new 
and tougher set of economic 
sanctions against South Africa 
which would bar all commer- 
cial bank loans, and flights to 
the US by South African 
planes and prohibit the impor- 
tation of South African coal, 
steel and uranium. 


From Michael Binyon. Washington 

The House foreign affairs last month in both the House 


sub-committee on Africa vot- 
ed for the new measures on 
Wednesday, and Mr Thomas 
“Tip" O’Neill. the Speaker, 
said the Bill would receive 
priority for quick action by the 
Democrat-controlled House. 

The BilL first introduced 


and Senate immediately after 
the South African raids on 
Zambia. Zimbabwe and Bo- 
tswana, also mandates a com- 
plete ban on US computer 
sales if Mr Nelson Mandela, 
the imprisoned African Na- 
tional Congress leader, is not 
released within a year. 


Britain’s 
action plan 
for jobless 
unveiled 

From Richard Owen 
Brussels 

In one of the opening shots 
in Mrs Thatcher's campaign 
for an effective, no-nonsense 
British presidency of the EEC, 
Mr Kenneth Garke, the Min- 
ister for Employment yester- 
day dismissed the social 
proposals Britain will inherit 
next month as “piffle" and 
said Britain wanted to tackle 
the main problem confronting 
the Community — unemploy- 
.ment 

At a meeting of social affairs 
ministers in Luxembourg, Mr 
Clarke launched a new plan 
for tackling long-term unem- 
ployment and encouraging en- 
terprise. The action 
programme — formulated by 
Britain, Ireland and Italy — 
focuses on aid to the self- 
employed and small and me- 
dium-sized businesses, and 
the dismantling of legal and 
administrative obstacles to 
initiative and growth. 

Mr Clarke said he was 
delighted to be able to an- 
nounce a new EEC directive 
on greater equality between 
men and women in pension 
and sick pay schemes. 

The ministers also called on 
member states to give the 
handicapped a fairer chance in 
job application and training. 

Britain takes over the presi- 
dency of the Council of Minis- 
ters from The Netherlands on 
July 1, and British ministers 
are already indicating that the 
Government wants action 
programmes rather than talk 
while Britain is in the chair. 

Mr Garke emerged from a 
long discussion on the prob- 
lems of farmers’ wives clearly 
impatient with the endless 
wrangles among the Twelve. 

“The problem is the agenda 
we have inherited from the 
past," he said. "We should be 
tackling the important issue 
we all face: unemployment 
and job creation." 

Ministers spent too much 
time on matters in which 
people back home would not 
take much imeresL "I bet 
there are not many ministers 
round the tabic today who 
remember who it was who 
wanted the farmers’ wives 
directive in the first place." 
Mr Clarke added trenchantly. 

The action programme for 
employment growth presented 
by him blames unemploy- 
ment partly on unrealistic 
wage increases 3nd calls for 
far-reaching changes in the 
labour market. 

The report recommends 
laying emphasis on enterprise 
and training and the reduction 
of barriers to initiative. 

Asked if this plan was not as 
vague as those he was criticiz- 
ing, Mr Garke said it was 
deliberately imprecise "to en- 
tice people into discussion". 
Britain hoped for results by 
the end of its six-month 
presidency.

Changes may sway 
extradition treaty 

From Michael Binyon, Washington 


The long-delayed Anglo- 
American extradition treaty 
may finally be ratified. 

The Senate foreign relations 
committee is to vote on it 
today, and the Republican 
leadership is confident that 
recent minor changes will 
make it acceptable to at least 
some of the Democrats who 
have held it op for almost a 
year. 

Senator Richard Lugar, the 
committee chai rman, has pro- 
posed two key changes. One 
defines the crimes for which 
the political argument against 
extradition could not be used. 
The list, which includes mur- 
der, manslaughter, hostage- 
taking, kidnapping and setting 
or exploding a bomb against 
civilians or the military, does 
not contain the simple posses- 
sion of firearms, which was 
covered in the earlier text. 

In the other change, the fact 
that extradition is not auto- 
matic is spelt out: a US court 
still has to decide whether the 
request should be granted. 

Both changes are accept- 
able, though not particularly 
welcome, to Britain and the 
Administration. They may 
sway at least two or three 
Democrats, enough to change 
the presumed majority of nine 


to eight votes against the 
treaty. The changes have been 
modelled on the language of a 
supplementary extradition 
treaty being negotiated with 
West Germany. 

The Democrats have insist- 
ed that their opposition stems 
not from electoral pressures 
from Irish-Americans bat 
from worries about the tradi- 
tion of political refuge in the 
US. Bnt, in the face of 
mounting pressure from Brit- 
ain, the Administration and 
President Reagan personally, 
many are eager to seek a lace- 
saving compromise. 

Meanwhile, four Irish na- 
tionals and three Boston men 
were indicted in Boston on 
Wednesday on charges of 
plotting to ship sophisticated 
arms and ammunition to the 
ERA. The men were arrested 
last month as weapons were 
being loaded on to a plane 
bound for Ireland. 

They were charged with 
conspiring to violate the Arms 
Export Control Act and vari- 
ous federal firearms statutes. 
The indictment said two Irish- 
men had negotiated with an 
undercover FBI agent to 
and ship 100 M16 rifles, 5,' 
rounds of ammunition and a 
Redeye surface-to-air missile. 


Six weeks after Chernobyl: nuclear power in retreat 


French call to Berlin 
for Waldheim report 


The French 
has asked the French military 
authorities in Berlin to send 
them as soon as possible all 
information concerning a 
1979 report on the wartime 
career of Dr Kun Waldheim, 
the former UN Secretary- 
General and leading candidate 
in next Sunday’s run-off presi- 
dential elections in Austria. 

M Denis Baudouin, the 
Prime Minister's official 
spokesman, said that the in- 
quiries began last week, and 
that the Government hoped to 
have the information in time 
for publication before 
Sunday’s elections. 


From Diana Geddes, Paris 
Government “All the cards will be laid on 
the table," he promised. 

The inquiry into the exis- 
tence of the report was made 
at the request of Rabbi Mar- 
vin Hier of the Simon 
Wiesenthal Centre in Los 
Angeles, after he had shown 
French government officials 
what he claimed was a copy of 
a report on Dr Waldheim's 
wartime career, drawn up by a 
French military archivist in 
Berlin and dated March 21 
1979. 

.All the archives relating to 
the Wehrmacht’s wartime ac- 
tivities are held in the French- 
occupied sector of Berlin. 



Angry fanners yesterday begin dumping 
11 tonnes of radioactive grass outside 
government offices in Stockholm (Chris- 
topher Mosey writes). 

The farmers, from the AdaJea district 
in central Sweden, said they were 
protesting against the Government's 
ineffectual measures to deal with the 
fallout from the Chernobyl nuclear 


disaster which settled on Swedes. 

Asked why they did not dump the 
grass outside the Soviet Embassy, they 
said their action was also a protest 
against Sweden's own unclear power 
programme. 

The farmers stopped dumping the 
grass when top officials from the 
Ministry of Energy, under Mrs Birgjtta 


Dahl, who also deals with environmental 
matters, offered to talk to them. _ _ 
The farmers measured radiation 
from the Adalen district pastures to be 
about 700 micro-roentgens. They said 
they had formed a co-operative to buy 
geiger counters after state radiation 
experts neglected to take measurements 
in their area. 


Paper tells EEC examines alternatives 


of huge 
evacuation 

Moscow (Reuter) — The 
entire population of an area 
stretching 80 miles was evacu- 
ated from a corner of south- 
eastern Byelorussia after the 
Chernobyl nuclear accident, 
according to the republic's 
Communist Party newspaper. 

The June 3 edition of 
Sovietskaya Be/orussia, which 
reached Moscow yesterday, 
said hundreds of vehicles were 
used to take people from the 
area, which it said included 50 
settlements. 

A First Deputy Health Min- 
ister, Mr Oleg Shchepin, told a 
news conference in Moscow 
yesterday that 26 people had 
died because of the accident 
on April 26. including 24 from 
radiation. The previous death 
toll was given as 25. 

Sovietskaya Belorussia said 
special groups were sent to the 
towns of Khoiniki, Bragin and 
Narovtya in the comer of the 
republic to supervise the 
evacuation. 

The newspaper article said 
workers “were faced with 
evacuating the whole popula- 
tion, technical equipment and 
cattle from the zone". It said 
some officials had gone almost 
three days without sleep. 

Mr Shchepin said that, of 19 
people who bad received bone 
marrow transplants, six were 
still alive. 

The state of the critically ill 
was continually changing, he 
said, but “today we can say for 
sure that there are at least 10” 
in a serious condition. Earlier, 
30 people were reported to be 
critically ilL 

• Rumours warning: Pravda 
warned people yesterday not 
to spread rumours that evacu- 
ees from the Chernobyl acci- 
dent were infecting others 
with radiation. 

A Pravda columnist, dis- 
cussing thousands of letters 
the newspaper has received 
since the disaster, said local 
officials and news media 
should do more to help those 
affected by the accident. 

• Abnormal levels: A British 
radiation equipment specialist 
said yesterday that tests on 
residents of Kiev, south of the 
stricken Chernobyl nudear 
plant, had shown radiation 
levels that were abnormally 
high but not dangerous. 




for energy of the future 


From Richard Owen, Brussels 


Four years ago an EEC 
opinion poll found that 38 per. 
cent of those asked thought an 
explosion at a nuclear power 
plant was not very likely and 
only 10 per cent thought it 
very likely. Even recent EEC 
energy reports focus on draw- 
backs such as the cost of 
reactor construction and 
nuclear fuels rather than the 
risk of an accident. 

This week’s meeting of EEC 
energy ministers in Luxem- 
bourg proved that the climate 
of opinion a month and a half 
after Chernobyl is radically 
different 

“Nuclear power is in 
limbo.” an assistant to Mr 
Nicolas Mosar, the Commis- 
sioner for Energy, said. “It is 
difficult to plan long-term 
with Chernobyl hanging over 
us." 

Mr Peter Walker, Secretary 
of State Tor Energy, emerged 
from the meeting to pro- 
nounce that safe nuclear ener- 
gy was an essential ingredient 
of energy policy, but also that 
the energy mix had to be 
reviewed in the light of “world 
events” 

One EEC official said: “The 
EEC dilemma is that Cher- 
nobyl has come just as Europe 
was hoping decisively to re- 
duce its reliance on oil. There 
may not be a re-think in 
Russia, but there certainly will 
be in the West." 

The EEC view is that a 
retreat from nuclear energy 
could mean a return to dan- 
gerous dependence on import- 
ed oil. Although oil prices are 
unusually low, the market is 
prone to unpredictable fluc- 
tuation. 

Mr Mosar told the ministers 
that if oil prices continued at 
S15 a barrel or less over the 
next four years, Opec surplus- 
es could be exhausted and 
Europe could face another oil 
crisis reminiscent of the shock 
of 1973. 

Mr Mosar’s solution is a 
mix of alternative renewable 
energy sources, traditional re- 
sources, such as coal and oil, 
and “sate” nuclear install- 
ations. 

The problem, as the EEC 
formulates energy guidelines 
for the next 10 years, is that no

nuclear safety measures are 
likely to satisfy the anti- 
nuclear states: Greece. Ireland 
and. above all Denmark. 

Tightening up the monetary 
provisions of the 29-year-old ■ 
Euratom treaty will not be 
enough. A minimum demand, • 
backed by Mr Stanley Clinton 
Davis, the Environment and 
Nudear Safety Commission- 
er, is the setting-up of an EEC 
nudear inspectorate. 

The Commission this week 
announced that Euratom in- 
spectors are to have access for 
the first time to both civil and 
military nudear processing at 
Sellafield after agreement be- 
tween Mr Walker and Mr 
Mosar' at Luxembourg. 

In a reflection of powerful 
combined anti-nuclear and 
anti-EEC feeling in Denmark, 
the Danes even tried to excise 
the word “nuclear" from the 
energy objectives for 1995 
which the energy ministers 
sought in vain this week to 
formulate. 


A commission plan for al- 
lotting nudear power as much 
as 40 per cent of EEC energy 
consumption by 1995 was 
quietly dropped even before 
the ministers met. 

West German efforts to 
achieve a compromise over 
the energy objectives foi 
dered on Danish demands for 
a reference to the dangers of 
siting nuclear reactors near the 
borders of fellow European 
states. 

France, which leads the pro- 
nuclear lobby, does not want 
fellow Europeans objecting to 
any of its 17 planned reactors 
which are near border zones. 
One such is a plant on the 
Moselle which has already 
aroused alarm in West Ger- 
many and Luxembourg. 

lii the (haft- objectives, 
nudearenergy was to be given 
“an important and increasing 
role" in energy policy. But 
after Chernobyl, ^increasing" 
was out of thequestioo, and 
even an Anglo-German se- 
mantic compromise — • the 
word “substantial” — . was 
rejected by the anti-nuclear 
states. 

EEC officials say that in the 
long term the best hope of the 
pro-nuclear stales is that the 
Chernobyl effect will fade and 
that the Twelve will eventual- 
ly agree on a 10-year strategy 
whjch includes the nuclear 
sector, while at the same time 
emphasizing nuclear safety 

In the short term, however, 
EEC states have to reassure 
public opinion in Europe and 
to show that it was not 
disastrous strategic mistake to 
increase the role of nuclear 
power in electricity output 
from a mere 5 per cent at the 
time of the 1973 oil crisis to 
about 35 per cent this year.

Vienna — Hungary told

protesters demonstrating in 
Budapest (Richard Bassett 
writes). 

The warning seemed to 
have followed student demon- 
strations in Prague and Buda- 
pest against the development 
of nuclear power stations 
along the Austrian border. 

Observers in Vienna said 
the warning was to deter 
Austrian students from pro- 
testing in Budapest on Sunday

Mr Gorbachov. 


Bonn shaken as Greens organize big anti-reactor rally 


From Frank Johnson 
Bonn 

West Germany's biggest 
demonstrations so far against 
nuclear power are promised 
for this weekend, just when the 
Government was beginning to 
hope that it had allayed a post- 
Chernobyl fear of the atom 
that seems to have gripped the 
country. 

The Greens ecology party, 
which has been given new life 
by Chernobyl, yesterday 
called on its supporters in the 
north to flock at the weekend 
to Brokdoit Schleswig-Hol- 
stein, where the country's 
newest reactor is to come on 
stream later this month. 

One of the Greens’ more 


exuberant hopes is that 
enough of them might stay 
there to stop the reactor ever 
going into service. The orga- 
nizers said they expected 

100.000 people, which would 
make it the biggest single 
demonstration at a nuclear 
installation in West German 
history. 

Whether they achieve such 
a number remains to be seen, 
but the Schleswig-Holstein 

Interior Ministry is taking the 
Greens at their word. About 

2.000 police and federal bor- 
der guards wjU seal off the 
plant for the weekend. 

Local farmers have offered 
beds and food to the demon- 
strators. Here, in a nutshell, is 


Bonn's political problem. The 
fanners are the sort of conser- 
vatives who would not normal- 
ly ally with people such as 
Greens and protesting stu- 
dents. Bnt on a number of 
environmental issues — dying 
forests as well as nuclear 
power — there are signs that 
conservative voters are as 
worried as anyone else. 

It is not thought that they 
would vote for the Social 
Democrats (SPD), but they 

would abstain in the general 
election in January. 

It was to deal with this 
electoral threat that Chancel- 
lor Kohl this week appointed 
the highly conservative Mayor 
of Frankfort, Herr Walter 


Wallmann.to the new federal 
post of Environment Minister, 
with special responsibility for 
reactor security. 

Fear of nuclear power has 
long been big in West Germa- 
ny bnt has been largely con- 
fined to the left and the radical 
intelligentsia. But Chernobyl 
changed 

Then, to Bonn's horror, an 
almost imperceptible leak 
from a nuclear reactor at 
Hamm, Westphalia, on May 4 
became known a week ago and 
was seized on by the anti- 
nuclear lobby as proof of their 
new slogan: "Chernobyl is 
everywhere." 

It was also claimed that 
there had been a cover-up, hi 


that the state-regolated com- 
pany that runs Hamm had not 
informed the North Rhine- 
Westphalia Land government 
of the leak. 

The Land Economics Min- 
ister supported that charge. 
The company insisted that it 
had made the leak known and 
threatened to sue him. 

To add to the air of conspir- 
acy, the ministry official who 
allegedly received the com- 
pany’s report was traced by 
Interpol to Italy, where he was 
spending a few days. He 
confirmed that the report had 
been received. 

The one consolation for 
Bonn is that the reactor is the 
responsibility of a Land gov- 


ernment whose Prime Minis- 
ter, Herr Johannes Ran, Is the 
Social Democrats' candidate 
for Chancellor against Herr 
Kohl in the general election. 

Yesterday the Greens forced 
an emergency debate in the 
Bundestag, the federal Parlia- 
ment, in which they accused 
both the large parties, the 
SPD and Herr Kohl's Chris- 
tian Democrats, of Irresponsi- 
bility. Most Social Democrat 
MPs had no alternative but to 
defend their party colleague, 
the North Rhine-WestplSig 
Economics Minister. 

Meanwhile, the Hamm re- 
actor remained switched off 
pemfiag efforts to convince the 
public that it is entirely safe.

Vienna (Reuter) — The 
Warsaw Pact will offer “radi- 
cal troop cuts" across Europe 
after the summit of the seven-

Threat to 
Spanish 
holidays 

By Our Foreign Staff 

The Chief Minister of the 
Balearic Islands has warned 
that the protracted dockers* 
strike at Spanish ports may hit 
the islands' holiday season. 

Another strike which began 
yesterday and is due to contin- 
ue until Monday on Span tax, 
the ailing commercial airline 
based on Palma, Majorca, 
could affect 200 flights, in- 
cluding those to Birmingham 
and Manchester. The dispute 
is over the airline's future and 
jobs. 

The Balearic Islands warn- 
ing came as hotel staff in the 
islands yesterday began their 
first strike over wages since 
1977. It is due to be spread 
over various days during the 
coming weeks. 

Sen or. Gabriel Canellas, 
who is in the hotel business 
himself, said after seeing Se- 
nor Felipe Gonzalez, the 
Prime Minister, in Madrid, 
that the central Government 
should enlarge the minimum 
services dockers are required 
to give to include up to 75 per 
cent of all regularly transport- 
ed goods. 

Spanish dockers are now in 
their second 10-day strike at 
most ports against the Social- 
ist Government's reform of 
the existing labour law set up 
by a decree. 

The car and passenger ferry 
service between Santander 
and Plymouth has not been 
affected by the dispute. 

Regular services from the 
Spanish mainland to the Bale- 
arics have been taking cargo in 
order to get over the effects of 
ine strike. Dockers in Barcelo- 
na and Palma have indicated 
in this second strike that they 
will handle all perishable 
goods.

From David Watts 
Tokyo 

The Japanese Prime Minis- 
ter, Mr Yasuhiro Nakasone, 
and hts Liberal Democratic 
Party are being criticized for 
rushing a h e ad with doable 
elections in July — bat hi 
reality neither the man nor the 
party has mnch rinAy hi 
pofitkal terras. 

Mr Nakasone’s party col- 
lengnes, paitfcatarfy the for- 
mer prime ministers and those 
wanting to succeed Hm ns 

Prime Minister later this year, 
have been critical of what they 
caH his high-handed style. But 
even though a successful elec- 
tion will bring Mr Nakasone 
extra credit they would Eke to 
deny him, they know that the 
party cookl not wait until the 
autanmforan *Mnn. 

Some parts of the economy 
are already showing die nega- 
tive effects of the 40 per cent 
appreciation in tire yen against 
the dollar since September, 
and to wait any longer would 
ensure only an even larger 
timber of small businesses 
feeing faankrqptcy and Ing 
c or po rati ons with reduced 
profits. 

The former are i m port ant 
elements in political support 
outside the trig conurbations, 
and the tatter bring in fends 
for elections which are among 
the most expensive in the 
world. 

A leading principle of elec- 
tions in Japan is that they 
have more to do with internal 
rivafries among the Liberal 
Democrats than debate over 
ideologies: normally the last 
thing on anyone's mind is what 
is happening in the rest of tire 
world, on trade or anything 
else. 

In any event, tire financial 
and organizational muscle of 
the party is unsurpassed, as is 
its ability to deliver fee 
goodsfeat bring in fee votes — 
new roads, “bullet train” lines 
and contracts for tofl firm*. 
The figure at the top of the 


party is merely fee caretaker 
of fee organization for a period 
of time which has been fixed at 
two years. The president of the 
party, who is also concmrently 
the Prime Minister, normally 
operates within strict guide- 
lines defined by fee consensus 
be must attain on any and aD 
issues before a decision is 
taken. 

Mr Nakasone has broken 
that mould, and few in the 
party like him for it. He has 
recognized, almost since he 
came info office, that, to 
overcome most of Japan's 
problems at home and abroad, 
needs the kind of bold deci- 
sion-making and implementa- 
tion that consensus by its very 
nature does not produce. 

So he has consistently gone 
outride normal channels to get 
decisions he wants by appoint- 
ing panels of experts and 
associates who bypass the 
bureaucracy and tel] him very 
mnch what he wants to bear. 

Wife fee experts' report to 
bade him np, he then tries to 
have a given policy — such as 
the Maekawa report on the 
restractoring of the Japanese 
economy — adopted as party 
and government policy. This 
sort of style wins points wife 
the pabOc and foreign coun- 
tries, but only earns him 


jealousy and a determination 
to cut him down at tire first 
opportunity among fata senior 
party colleagues. 

If Mr Nakasone has a 
"good” election, and fee party 
is able to win a controlling 
influence on all Diet commit- 
tees and gives np its depen- 
dence on fee New Liberal 
Club, Mr Nakasone win have 
won a famous victory. 

He hopes tire way win then 
be dear for him to persuade 
fee party to change its rules 
and allow a President and 
Prime Minister to stay on for a 
third temi r 

At the moment, hardly any- 
one, outride of his own small 
faction, wants him to have that 
third fai w , 

Mr Nakasone has already 
had his torn, and behaved 
throughout for too arrogantly 
for the liking of most of the 
party elders. 

Much depends on the atti- 
tude of tire Tanaka faction, 
which is still the largest and 
most mflaeothil in tire party. 

Despite having a stroke 15 
months ago, Mr Kaknei Tana- 
ka, the former Prime Minister 
convicted of taking 500 nuDion 
yen in bribes from Lockheed, 
will be tunning in tire election 
and artfng sts fee “godfather” 

Of farrinn. 


Mr Ta n a ka was tire first to 
suggest the change in fee 
leadership rules, but be may 
be less keen to promote it now, 
since one of the leading 
hopefuls to replace Mr 
Nakasone is Mr Nobora 
Takes hita, fee Finance Minis- 
ter, who is the heir apparent in 
tire Tanaka faction. 

They do grant, however, 
that Mr Nakasone is good at 
one thing — dealing wife 
foreigners. If trade problems 
are still looking nasty in the 
antnmn, and plans for the 
reform of the Japanese nation- 
al railways are proving as 
ticklish as anticipated, Mr 
Nakasone's reward might be 
an extended term to sort ont 
those particular problems. . 

But there is no lack of 
people willing to bet agatn yt 
that Mr Shin Kanesnaru, tire 
party’s secretary-general, be- 
lieves it is time for the -so- 
called “new leaders” to take 
over. These are the Foreign 
Minister, Mr Shiutaro Abe; 
the Finance Minister, Mr 
Noboru Takesbita; and a for- 
mer Foreign Minister, Mr 
Kiichi Miyazawa. 

In a land of cautious politi- 
cal conformism, Mr Naka- 
soue, the “old” leader, is still 
the most bold and innovative. ■

Royal work in the inner cities 






Next Friday the Prince of 
WaleS; wfll present the 
Times/RIBA community 
enterprise scheme awards. ' 
The Prince has taken a 


. sometimes controversial 


interest in community needs, but behind the 
headlines Charles Knevitt finds achievement 


I t has become popular to- 
speculate about how the 
Prince of Wales should occur 
py his time. Thc Ooveraor- 
ship -of Hong Kong was 
among the recent kites being flown. 


although whether this was meant to 
n no: 


be an honour for the colony or a 
form of temporary exile for the 
Prince is unclear. 

Contrary -to the impression 
sometimes .given by these and 

- other fanciful notions, -there is a 
' more serious side to the Prince; ah 

interest and concern to which Ik is 
devoting an increasing proportion 

- of his time. It is a Tange of activities 

- focused on helping the young, the 
disadvantaged, the unemployed,- ' 
small businesses and community 
groups to encourage them to seize 

"initiatives, help others and help 
. themselves. 

" Shocked by-the inner city riots in 
• 1981, he also took up the cause of • 
community architecture as offering 
one way to encourage those living 
in areas of multiple deprivation, 
and who fed alienated and inxiini- 
' dated by. their surroundings, to do 
..something about it. . 

•- The fust.time he brought it to 
-wide' public notice, however, his 
remarks were over-shadowed by

projects. “He thinks people are for ' 
too narrow-minded in their ap- 
proach. He wants to see 
innovation**, says Stephen. 
O'Brien, director of Business in the 
Community. The Prince became 
president of BIC last year for a five- 
year- term. “He wants to make a 
practical contribution and does not 
take ‘it can't be done* for an 
answer-. 

Next week the Prince will be 
chairing a quarterly board meeting 
of BIC wheat it will take a decision 
to establish between six and' eight 
local development partnerships to 
help coordinate initiatives and 
bring in. outside resources. He has 
either visited, or has made pfons to 
visH.15 events this year; meeting 
enterprise agencies, opening 
Project Full-Employ training cen- 
tres- and regional exhibitions in 
places as diverse as Brixttm, Car- 
lisle and Skehnersdale. 



ne of the favourite ex- 
pressions erf those in- 
volved in community 
projects is the “bottom- 
up" approach, which 
contrasts with the “top-down" 
stance of central and local govern- 
ment, and* other bureaucracies. 
“You could say that the Prince is a 
top-down person married to a 
bottom-up approach”, says 
O'Brien. “He has the ability to 
work at two levels: be has a deep 
concern for people, especially the 
poor„but he also picks up ideas of 
what needs to be done, spots _ 
and then does something to 
them".'

£550 per person. 

r The Prince's wish to overcome 
the “barbed wires of bureaucracy", 
and a willingness to take risks are 
two attributes identified by those 
who work closely with him He 
shares with Prrace Albert/ one of 
his .heroes; an enthusiasm for 
reform and for sowing the seeds of 
an “enterprise culture" by involv- - 
ing industiy and commerce in local 


isers, says: “He is very 
perceptive and has an uncanny 
foresight at times. He can discern 
the wasters and sycophants a mile 
off. from those .who are truly 
committed to ideas he wants to 
support He is loyal to those who 
are loyal to him. He has an 
extraordinary rapport with the 
people he meets on his visits to 
community architecture proejets. 
Those who want to rubbish his 
ideas get caught in a pincer 
movement!" 

To the consternation of some, 
the Prince's support for communi- 
ty architecture — and for Rod 
Hackney — has survived the recent 
trauma: He has seen several of the 
entiies for the Community Enter- 
prise Awards be will be presenting 
at the RIBA next week, when, he is 
expected to make another impor- 
tant speech on the subject. 

Hackney says: “He likes making 
waves by throwing a rock into the 
pod' and seeing the result. Many 
thought that his Hampton Court 
speech' was the last, as well as the 
first, word be would have to say on 
architecture. Now the pod has 
filledup again and perhaps it's time 
for another splash". •

THE DUCHY OF CORNWALL 


COMMUNITY BUSINESS 


The Prince of Wales has appointed community 
architects for two projects on his Duchy of Cornwall es- 
tate. Work has just started on anew community centre 
in the village of Carry Mallet, Somerset, seven miles 
from Taunton. Joe Poynton, a member of the RIBA's 
Conummity Architecture Group, was bronght in by the 
Duchy after people in the parish petitioned tire Prince 
over development plans they didn't want He has 
worked with the village in drawing op a brief and a de- 
sign,, which includes some self-help decorating and 
landscaping. In Kennington, sooth London, Ben 


•Derbys hi re, vice-chairman of the Conummity Archi- 
tecture Group and a partner in. Hint Thompson 
Associates, is working with .tike tenants, of Newquay 
House in formulating a housing cooperative. The 
Prince met conunmihy leaders after they had criticised 
the, management of the Mock, built in 1933 and the 
Duchy's largest A decision on how to prtJtBedT will Be- 
taken at a Dsdy council meeting, chaired by the 
Prince, next month. One idea is to set up a development 
trust to carry oat essential repairs and improvements 
and hand oyer management to the .tenants. 


THE LIMEHOUSE BASIN 


In Match the Prince made an unannounced tour of 
post-war London housing estates in a Tower Hamlets 
community transport bus, with six experts and inner 
city initiatives. The East London Advertiser reported: 
“East Enders were given a Tight royal’ surprise when 
Prince Charles dropped in fora chat and walkabout on 
the St Vincent's Estate, Limehouse. His visit was a 
completely 'hush-hush' affair and the Prince took the 
opportunity to speak to tenants about plans to 
revitalize their homes". 

As part of the same tour he also visited Limehouse 
Basin, the scene of a controversial £70 million 
redevelopment plan by the British Waterways Board 
and Hunting Gate, the property firm, which a local ac- 
tion committee, the Limehouse Development Group, 


is opposing. It has prepared an alternative which will 
be published in foe Limehouse Petition later this 
month. The group has sent draffs of the report to him. 

Richard Roberts, a member of LDG, said: “Prince 
Charles saw both ends of the scale. The visit went very, 
very well and be came across as someone who cares.” 
The final part of the tour was an official visit to Lea 
View House, in Hackney, which has been refurbished 
by the council using community architects Hunt 
Thompson Associates, who set up an office on the es- 
tate and consulted the tenants at every stage. 

The LDG proposals and the Lea View project were 
both shortlisted entries in The TTmes/REBA Commu- 
nity Enterprise Scheme. 


As president of Business in the 
Community, the Prince makes 
frequent visits to local enterprise 
^agencies, .Project Full-Employ 
training schemes and small busi- 
ness exhibitions, as well as chairing 
-two- quarterly board meetings ^a 
year. Stephen O’Brien, BICs direc- 
tor, said: “Skehnersdale reeked pfj 
fresh paint when the Prince arrival 
to opeti an exhibition of small 
businesses. His visit gaviea lift to 
all those involved in the enterprises 
and he suggested ways in which 
people could build on what they 
had already achieved". 

Reports on the Prince's address 
to chairmen of the enterprise 
agencies in Carlisle made national 
television news. He saw an exhibi- 
tion featuring a range of products 
and services, from glass engraving 
to a construction plant hire firm 
and a pregnancy, scanner devised 
for sheep. In Brixton, when he 
visited the Bon March* centre forj 
local enterprises, “he must have 
shaken the hands of half the 
population”, O'Brien said.

you drink enough beer you 
will be both athletic and rich. 

Not only is the picture 
reduced at regular intervals to 
make room for beer ads, but 
the coverage of active play is 
alsoimerrupted on both NBC 
and the cable sports channel 
ESPN for a series of two- 
minute commercial breaks. 

Should a goal occur during 
these breaks, a commercial 
cannot be interupted io return 
to the match. Frustrated view- 
ers are shown action replays of 
missed goals accompanied by 
bland “shopping music". 

American sports differ 
sharply in concept from their 
foreign counterparts. Baseball 
and football are highly struc- 
tured affairs in which the 
build-up to a scoring opportu- 
nity is methodical and predict- 
able and consists of set-piece 
action. Basketball and ice 
hockey, both enormously pop- 
ular, are less highly structured 
but the periods of freeflowing 
play are actually brief and 
frenetic intervals between 
scoring. Hockey and basket- 
ball scores look like telephone 
numbers. 

American sports fens have 
thus become obsessed with 
statistics — averages, percent- 
ages,. yards of ground gained 
and lost — so that detailed 
sports results read like tables. 

American commentators 
bring this addiction to 
arithmetic to association foot- 
ball. Goals are attributed to 
the actual scorer but an 
“assist" is also awarded to the 
players influential in their 
creation. The viewer is further 
inundated with scorelines giv- 
ing the numbers of foils, 
scoring chances and other 
minutiae as they occur. The 
peculiarly inappropriate dic- 


tion of American commenta- 
tors heightens the impression 
that they haven't a due 
Commentators borrow their 
vocabulary from traditional 
American sports even where it 
does not apply. Thus, a run- 
ning commentary is known as 


“play by play" despite the fact 
.infix 


that in football there is no play 
by play. Supporters are called 
“rooters", conjuring up a 
mental image of pigs grovel- 
ling on the terraces for food. 
Goalkeepers are called goal- 
lenders (as in ice hockey), and 
clearances by defenders are 
referred to as saves, leaving 
saves by the goalkeeper to be 
called “hand-saves". 

The star analyst for NBC 
and ESPN is Seamus Mali a, 
an emigrant from Dublin and 
Harvard football coach. 
Charles Jones, a commentator 
for NBC is a basketball expert 
who knows next to nothing 
about football but who, ac- 
cording to NBC publicity, 
“will use his inquisitive mind 
to draw out information'* 
from his colleagues. ESPN 
have a commentator with the 
unlikely name of Shep 
Messing. 

Although football is widely 
played in American schools 
and colleges, most sports fans 
find it dull and uneventful As 
Mike Soltys, a spokesman for 
ESPN put it “Everybody 
mows their lawns but that 
doesn't mean they want to 
watch someone mowing theirs 
on television". - 

It is the essence of American 
life, however, that another 
option is always available in 
any given situation. So per- 
haps thousands of expatriate 
Britons are. like myself, turn 1 
ing to the Spanish language 
channels, where although the 
commentary is incomprehen- 
sible it at least sounds 
informed.

what 


Looking back, Ladrie realizes that 
his marriage was doomed from the 
start 


He was searching for someone to 
replace _bis over-protective mother 
who had' died two months before he 
proposed.' Carol, - his wife, was 
“nmmpg for shelter” from a- previ- 
ous^ turbulent ' and - paarinnati- 
relationship/ 

- “I thought I was in love”, admits 
Laurie, a warm, good-looking man, 
now hrfais 40s. “With hindsight, I 
can see that I_ was deluding myself 
My- upbringing had been so emo- - 
tionaily sheltered and my mother’s 
death was an appalling shock to 
me.” - 


it. she clnoniciestlie experiences of 
; a randomly selected cross-section of 

26 divorced men, “When a mar- 
riage goes wrong, men often have to 
flounder alone in emotional turmoil . 
because they do not have the- same 
support network of friends, male or ' 
.female, that women traditionally 
have”, says Wmn, a former editor of 
Psychology Today. / 

“Men usually claim that they find 
ft easier to talk to a woman to 
another man. . Women are often 
more ready to listen, and to 
understand.” - 


Even so, when Carol arranged to 
meet-' hinf after work one day, and 
told Jura that she was leaving him, it 
came like a bombshell He. had no 
idea that she was even unhappy.“It 
was a trem endous shock — just like 
my- mother’s death all over again. 
She {Carol) explained that she felt 
imftil filled, and 'that there was-' 
nowhere for the marriage to go, but 
that didn’t make sense to me at the 
time, ft seemed so pie in the sky, so 
unrealistic and romantic.” ••• 

At a' time when one marriage pi 
three ends in divorce, it is rare to 
hear the man's side of the story. 
Women "find it naturally easier to 
express their emotions * both 
privately and in public — and it is 
therefore their view?" which are 
normally- aired on the subject Yet 
divorce affects men every bit as . 
profoundly as women, and the very 
feet that they are less able to 
articulate-, their deepest feelings 
means that it is harder for them to 
come to terns emotionally with 
what bas happened.'; 

' Theseare the discoveries of writer' 
Denise Winn; whose book. Men On 
Divorce, is published next week. Iij - 


Yet, the factor which stands out 
most poignantly throughout her 
book is the similarity between the 




'*W' 

*4 




' feeling and fears of the men she 
interviewed, and those traditionally 
associated with women. In many 
cases, even their aspirations coin- 
cide. While it is the woman who is 
popularly regarded asAhe one who 
expects to be able tb. after her 
partner after marriage, one man 

confessed to Winn “ I would have 

liked my wife to conform tp the 
things I thought were reasonable. 
She could be very casual about 
things. She said that the more 1 tried 
to change her. the less she wanted to 
change. Changing was a big red flag 
to her. and there wasn’t any 
compromise or understanding on 
either of our parts.” 

While poor communication was 
mentioned by most of the men as a 
major contributory factor leading to 
.the breakdown of their marriage, 
Winn was intrigued to discover that 
their inability to . understand or 
communicate their feelings was so 
often attributed to upbringing. “For 
many men, these were some of the 
most painful realizations to come 
to, and to learn to deal with”, she 
says. • f - 

. It had certainly never occurred to 
Laurie that be and Carol were 
merely going through the motions 
of being happily married without 
ever facing up to the realities of then- 
life together. “It seemed to me that 
Carol and I had a very good 
relationship” says Laurie. “We 
spent a lot of time together, and we 
both liked doing things like going to 
the films and theatre. 


stance, the idea of having children 
just never arose. 1 thought she 
didn't want them, and she said 
‘What gave you that idea? You 
never asked me.* ” 

Interestingly, none of the men 
interviewed by Wmn used the 
opportunity to criticize their former 
partner or show themselves in a 
falsely favourable light. Chi the 
contrary, Winn felt that “a good few 
took more than their likely share of 
responsibility, through feelings of 
guilt and failure.” 

And while affairs frequently pre- 
cipitated break-ups, Winn found 
them to be symptoms rather than 
causes of the marriage breakdown, 
although, in each case, they sig- 
nalled “crunch point” for one or 
other of the partners. 

One man. who smashed up the 
furniture after discovering that his 
wife was having an affair, admits; 
“Looking back, the most useless 
thing I did was to get so emotionally 
hysterical for so long. I'd advise 
anyone in this situation to try to get 
the emotions out and then over and 
done with.” 

Winn found that quite a few men 
were aware of feeling relief when 
their wives admitted to affairs 
“because they already wanted to get

“But we were so naive. It ap- 
peared that everything was nice and 
normal because we didn’t want to 
face any unpleasant things. We 
didn’t talk about any problems, any 
differences. We never fought of 
argued. We just put thebest face on 
everything. In my view,' for in-; 



themselves out from 
become an impasse.” 

Pete, married to an outrageous' 

. . Sin. had -failed to recognizeJus own ' 
need to feel wanted and believed 
that his hurt and resentment over 
his wife’s behaviour meant that he 
was weak and unmanly. When be 
met a girl who actually lis tened l o~ 
hint he was enchanted. 

Several of the men found thar 
professional counselling helped 
them to adjust to and understand 
the failure of iheir marriages. De- 
void of the intimate friendships 
frequently enjoyed by women, their 
need for an outside source who 
would listen and even allow them 
the relief of a good cry for the fust 
time was. in some cases, desperate. 
Often the reaction of family and 
friends was to criticize or condemn 
the wife — frequently driving the 
man to defend her — raihenhair 
offering him sympathy and support. 

And for those with children;, the 
hardest part was coming to lerms 
with what was best for them. The 
conclusion of the divorced fathers is 
thar telling the children the" truth at 
the time of the break-up is of vital 
importance. Several of the men felt 
that their failure to establish an 
atmosphere of openness and trust at 
the outset made it difficult for their 
children to talk about their worries 
and insecurities when they 
them in later years. • 

Yet, despite the long-term and 
drastic effects of divorce on men. . 
most remarry and, generally, more 
quickly than women in the same 
situation. Winn suggests that this 
may be due to the feet that “the 
emotional burden of being exiled 
from the family is heavier than the 
financial burden of divorce”. . Ac- 
cording to the National Marriage 
Guidance Council, second 'mar- 
riages are much more likely to work 
if both partners have come to terms 
with the failure of the first, and have 
been able to learn positively from 
them, so as not to repeat the same 
mistakes. 

Even in marriages without chil- 
dren. the emotional impact of a 
divorce can be traumatic, and 
coming out of it with self-respect 
was seen, in retrospect, as being of 
paramount importance — even. by. 
those who felt that things bad -not 
turned out as they had wished. : 

And all too often. an already 
highly delicate situation is made, 
worse by the lawyers. One man, 
whose marriage had ended when he 
started an affair, wanted to do tbe 
best by his wife and son. and told his 
solicitor “Let's split it all half and 
half.” 

“If you do that, she’ll want 
more”, said the solicitor. 

“She is not that kind of person”, 
argued the man. 

“She will be,” replied the solici- 
tor. “And even if she isn’t, her 
solicitor is."

Withyesterday’s 


Albert Hall vote for a 


delay in midear 


development. 


Women’s Institutes 


are moving intothe 


political arena. How 
recent is the change? 


The Natidnaf Federation of 
Women's Institutes is losing 
its vilgffiily.. Rumours to this 
effect have been copiously 
scattered in the past, but 
yesterday at the Royal Albert 
Hall they~ - were finally 
confirmed: ^ ■ 

The NFWI, departing from 
its .traditional “Jam and 
Jerusalem” of debating mat- - 
ters of health and home, 
addressed itself to the greater 
and more dangerous issues of 
Chernobyl and Aids. ' 

We should have noted the 
advent of this a long while ago, ' 
for it was lack in the early 
1970s. that the .Federation 
voted a change in it? constitu- 
tion; whertfoy matters of pub- 
lic rather than purely domestic 
moments became legitimate 
hems of disensstod. 

Hence; in 1977 there was a . 
lengthy debate on tbe future of 
fast breeder, reactors. Now,, 
however, the gune has moved 
cm apace, and the NFWL with 
its record membership of - 
352,000 in 9,216 branches, is 
lobbying MPs about Kg Mat-, 
ters as never before. 


The Federation presents a 
strange picture of itseff at its 
annual convocation, on the 
one hand a classless amalgam 
of tweeds and twin sets, 
freshly, decamped, from the 
countryside and the suburbs 
to advance the moral interests 
af -dean. frying,, and on the 
other band an afeminist bevy 
of women packing London’s' 
raostfam ous concert hall with 
a view to nothing more than 
getting together. 

Yesterday the paradox was 
most graphically set out by the 
contrast between the scenes 
outside and inside the RAH. 

To take the second first; 
there were the trolleys of 
books fin sale; all about 
cushions,-, curtains, blinds, 
jams, and microwave ovens, 
while within the 1 precincts 
raged the debate about nuclear 
research and development, 
occasioned by a motion from 
the Chalgrave Federation in 
Bedfordshire. :

delegates trooped out of the 
ball to their ritual sandwich 
lunch in fee shadow of tbe 
Albert Memorial, wife fee

down stonily on this gaggle 
women. • 

Among thar number were 
fee Buckingham branch mem- 
bers Mrs Irene Standury and 
Mrs Anne Farthing, bom ad- 
herent -to fee view that the 
.WTs role in public life is 
changing: “In fee past we have 
always steered dear of religion 
and- politics” said Mrs 
Standury. “One of the reasons 
for this is that we accept 
members from all political 
parties and all branches of the 
church.” 

„ She seemed to imply a lost 
innocence on the part of the' 
WI— a scene feat was beingat 
once echoed. and questioned 
inside fee . building by Mrs 
Anne Ballard, tbe immacu- 
lately tumedrout general sec- 
retary of fee Federation: “You 
see. when we discussed fee 
matter of pre-school milk, in 
the eariy 1970s. it was some- 
how innocent Today, a dis- 
cussion like that would have 
far more - 
components. 

• •'So. yes we have become 
more, actively involved in 
politics.. We have had to. And 
yet, you. must remember as 
long ago as 1921 we were 
talking about getting more 
women on to local councils; 
then we debated fee question 
of equal pay in 1943 and now 
we're interest in equal tax- 
ation for husbands and wives 


Like the chairman of the 
AGM Mrs Agnes Salter, Mrs 
Ballard is a sort of un- 
Saatchied Margaret Thatcher 
— professional womanhood 
minus the packaging . 

Then there was Dr Ellen 
McLean, a benign American 
who could double nicely as the 
acceptable face of a Dynasty 
matriarch. She is president of 
fee Association of Country-? 
women of the World. Her own 
version of fee new WI world 
vision is this: “All issues have 


‘There is a terrific 
passion about WI . 
members as they go 
about their business* 


some eflecL however indirect, 
of the home and the 
environment-being a mem- 
ber of the WI has led me into 
all sorts of activities. In due 
course of time I would like to 
see us talking about the total 
development of women - 
education, employment, 
health and so on.” 

. tr ... r . To judge from fee views of 

political fee women on the grass at 
* lunchtime, the . present WI 
remains; as it always was,, a 
body more devoted to harmo- 
ny between the sexes than to 
fee ascendancy of one. “We've 
never .been a militant force”, 
said one member from the 
Home Counties, “and I don't 
suppose we ever will be”. 

What is not commonly 
known about fee WI move- 
ment is its origin in Canada in 
in .1986. So there ttacontmu- - 1897, when a fanner’s wife in 
ityfeeit” ‘ Ontario lost her baby; she 


believed it to be fee result of 
her own ignorance and lack of 
child c ar e, and later started 
domestic science classes for 
local women. The first British 
WI opened in Anglesea 18 
years later. 

Today, fee Institute oper- 
ates at three separate levels. 
Locally, members join an 
institute, which might vary in 
size between 20 and 150, and 
they in turn are grouped into 
county federations. Between 
them the Wls and county 
federations mice up fee Na- 
tional Federation. -- • 
Yesterday^ meeting was, as 
every year, as much a mem- 
bership drive as a rally of fee 
faithful Even though fee char- 
acter of fee organization has 
inevitably changed with the 
deruralization of the English 
populace, it is none the less 
clinging to certain of its own 
ideals. 

The dearest evidence of this 
can be found in its demand for 
more stringent penalties 
against sex offenders. The 
proposer of the motion. 
LaJage Bosanquet. a mother of 
three who runs her own 
nursery school, said: “1 be- 
lieve' that a civilized society 
should protect- Hs -own- mem-- 
bers by taking a firm stance 
against this kind of crime.” 

Her seconder was Annette 
Bailey, from Grantham in 
Lincolnshire, who had told 
her two young children to 
“trust no one, not even tbe 
people they know" 

The WI may be changing, 
but not that much.

THE TIMES 
DIARY 

Editorial 

schism 

Crisis within the evangelical 
movement; both the editor and 
chairman of The Evangelical 
Times, which has a 16,500 circula- 
tion among independent evan- 
gelist noncomfbrmists, have res- 
igned in a row over editorial 
freedom. The dispute surfaced in- 
an impassioned leader in the last 
issue, in which editor Bob Horn 
wrote of a “threat to remove" 
Herbert Carson as chairman and 
called on- “reader power" to 
preserve the paper's editorial lib- 
erty. Last week Horn told me that 
the paper's major shareholder, 
Willis Metcalfe, a director of the 
Evangelical Press, had criticized 
two articles as “soft" on the 
charismatic movement — one a 
book review, the other a 
favourable obituary of the evan- 
gelist David Watson. It is now 
clear that Horn's rearguard action 
has failed. Phone calls to the paper 
were being redirected to the 
Evangelical Press, where I was told 
Horn had left and the paper bad a 
new chairman, the Rev T. Omri 
Jenkins. Yesterday. Metcalfe and 
the new chairman were both 
unavailable to talk about the 
boardroom tussle — or who their 
new editor would be.

been relegated to a -space in the

While. Nigel Lawson tinkers tim- 
idly with the British tax system - 
such as the recent penny in the 
pound cut in the basic tax rate — 
the US is on the verge of cutting 
the top tax rate from 50 to 27 per 
cent. .American multimillionaires 
will soon be taxed at lower rates 
than low-paid workers in Britain. 

The top US tax rate, which 
stood at 70 per cent in January ’ 
1981. was cut to 50 pCT cent later 
that year. Now the Senate tax 
committee has unanimously 
voted in fevour of a bill that cuts 
the top rate to 27 per cent and 
leaves the great majority of tax- 
payers paying only 1 5 per cenL It 
is a tremendous political victory 
for supply-side economics. 

Lower tax rates, moreover, 
signify that popular democracy in 
the US is now sufficiently mature 
to set aside envy and to focus on 
opportunity as the galvanizing 
force in politics. American leg- 
islators of all parties no longer 
believe that high rates are. nec- 
essary. This is a vast change since 
1978 when the Carter administra- 
tion wanted to raise taxes by 
closing loopholes while maintain- . 
ing high rates. 

Supply-side policy triumphed 
because it disproved the depress- 
ing Keynesian analysis that the 
economy could not grow without 
rising inflation, which in turn 
could not be subdued without 
higher unemployment. Since 1982 
the US economy has created 10 
million new jobs while inflation 
and interest rates have fallen. This 
“impossible" result has convinced 


Slash top tax 
rates— and 
all will benefit 

by Paul Craig Roberts 


politicians that incentives matter. 

In contrast, Mrs Thatcher's 
government has done the op- 
posite. Initially it reduced the top 
rate on earned income from 83 per 
cent to 60 per cent. (The surcharge 
on investment income, now abol- 
ished, meant that top taxpayers 
faced 98 per cent tax). But since 
then budgetary concerns about the 
deficit seem to have forestalled 
any further significant cut. Her 
reward has been 13 per cent 
unemployment. 

It would be hard to believe that 
Mrs Thatcher’s 1979" reduction to 
60 per cent cost the Treasury any 
revenue. American experience, 
demonstrated by Internal Rev- 
enue statistics, makes it clear that 
the reduction in the top rate from 
70 to 50 resulted in more revenue 
being collected from top bracket 
taxpayers — both in absolute 
terms and as a proportion of total 
tax collections. This resulted from 


higher-rated taxpayers earning 
arid declaring more income. The 
tax burden was consequently 
shifted upwards from poor to rich. 

Lower bracket taxpayers did not 
respond so well, but studies show 
that on average about half the 
revenue lost by cutting the rates 
was recovered — substantially 
more than the US Treasury had 
estimated in 1981. So the US 
evidence suggests that by con- 
centrating on reductions in the 
basic rate, the British government 
is maximizing the loss of revenue 
and gaining a minimum improve- 
ment in incentives. It seems an 
overly cautious approach to 13 per 
cent unemployment. 

Some - critics claim that the 
Reagan miracle was possible only 
because foreigners were wilting to 
finance the US trade and budget 
deficits. Not so. The capital 
account deficit was due not lo a 
rise in foreign capital inflows but 


to a sharp fall hr US capital 
outflows as overexposed US banks 
reduced their lending to the Third 
World. The diminished supply of 
the dollar in foreigi exchange 
markets produced.a sharp rise in 
its exchange value, which in turn 
caused a trade deficit. 

Similarly, the budget deficit was 
the product of unexpected dis- 
inflation. Reagan administration 
forecasts overestimated the. infla-. 
tion rate by a wide margin, with 
the . result that .nominal gross 
national product and tax revenues 
fell for short of projections. Since 
government spending based on 
the high projections did not fell 
(but actually rose), the budget 
deficit grew. - 

How, then, did the US govern- 
ment finance large budget deficits 
without pushing up inrerest rates 
or resorting to inflationary money 
creation? The answer is that the 
same disinflation that produced 
the deficit also caused a change in 
investment behaviour that fi- 
nanced the deficit. Flailing infla- 
tion made high-yielding Treasury 
bonds desirable investments. In- 
vestors duly bid up the price of 
bonds, thus pushing down interest 
rates. 

It is. impossible for a capitalist 
system lo work well when SO per 
cent tax rates are. applied to 
income above £25,000. Fortu- 
nately, however, Americans are 
not the only people who respond 
to incentives.

retary for Economic Policy. 


Rosemary Righter on an ambitious plan to help the self-helpers 


Geneva 

Proposals for a world revolution 
drawn up by Francis Blanchard, 
the veteran director general of the 
UN's International labour Office, 
were presented to its annual 
general conference here yesterday. 
His message, to an audience of 
bureaucrats, representatives of 
employer organizations and trade 
unionists, was that they represent 
only a minority; those in or- 
ganized work. 

The 1LO, his report said, must 
reaches out beyond the fee lories 
and plantations to the vast army 
of “potential workers" for whom 
thedole queue, sodal'security and 
regular hours are unobtainable 
luxuries — 1,200 million of them, 
two out of five of the world’s 
labour force. 

For .any constituent body of the 
United Nations, which is hardly 
celebrated for its adaptability to 
changing circumstances or its 
passion for relevance, this would 
be dramatic enough. But Blan- 
chard’s challenge is more radical 
still. Trade union leaders every- 
where, troubled by felling mem- 
bership due to recession and 
changing patterns of work, would 
welcome expenditure ' of public 
money on schemes which would 
sweH their ranks. But that is not 
the idea. “Integrating these work- 
ers into the formal sector", says 
Blanchard In his report* “might - 
be neither feaable nor realistic”: 
his goal is to encourage the 
“informal" world of street ven- 
dors, repair shops, hoe makers and 
fish dryers "to organize better the 
jobs they create themselves". The 
road to a better life is not going to 
be via the factory floor. 

This may seem self-evident 
when, even in the West, the move 
to small enterprises, part-time 
work or self-employment, with all 
the attendant uncertainties, is 
already an established trend But 
the ILO lives in a different world, 
from which- it is going to have to 
emerge if it is to help those 
millions of unemployed and 
underemployed 

The main task of the ILO's 
annual conference at present is to 
adopt international conventions 
on workers’ rights, social security, 
working conditions and industrial 
health hazards. After Chernobyl 
nobody would dismiss that work 
as unimportant and this year’s 
issue, asbestos is, is overdue for 
solution. It was to protect workers' 
rights and improve life in mills, 
mines .and factories that the ILO 
was founded in 1 9 1 9. But with 1 50 
conventions on the books, and 
many others honoured more in 
the breach than the observance. 

Cape Town 

The recent South African attacks 
on African National Congress 
bases in three neighbouring coun- 
tries are widely seen as a govern- 
ment sop to the increasingly 
strident Afrikaner right wing, even 
at the risk of scuppering the 
Commonwealth “eminent per- 
sons group" and so inviting 
economic sanctions. 

Interviews with cabinet min- 
isters and senior military officers 
do not bear out this interpretation. 
Fear of the right .wing is not a 
dominant sentiment; the threat 
posed by Eugene TerreBlanche . 
has been blown up out of ail 
proportion by the government 
itself and the western media. Far 
more worrying to Pretoria is the 
continuing turmoil and political 
vacuum in the townships, which it 
believes is due in pail to exag- 
gerated estimates of ANC power. 

The ANC claims not only that it 
has made many of the townships 
ungovernable but has also devel- 
oped the capacity to plant bombs 
and landmines anywhere in South 
Africa, it is confident of its ability 
to raise the armed struggle to new 
levels of violence and force Pre- 
toria to sue for peace. June 1 6, the 
tenth anniversary of the outbreak 
of the Soweto riots, has been 
mentioned as the date for taking 
insurgency warfare to new levels, 
perhaps into white suburbs. .

Home a shack, poverty ever 
present and hunger never far 
away. Can Francis Blanchard 
(right) offer a better life? 

: Blanchard argues that it is time to 
recognize that the fight against 
unemployment and poverty is 
beinglosL- •• 

“we have" he says, “beenquite 
successful — some people would 
say too successful — in promoting 
workers’ rights. But what about 
those poor devils "beyond all the 
laws we can devise?" 

To shift the venerable ILO into 
this new gear, Blanchard needs the 
agreement, if not encouragement, 
of its tripartite membership of 
governments, employers and 
trade unions, all accustomed to 
the thick rule books and customs 
of organized labour. Diplomati- 
cally, he describes his scheme as 
“worker protection", but it has 
nothing in common with welfare 
programmes. Indeed, his report 
asserts that to rely on policy 
-measures, legislation and the 
promotion of proper standards 
would simply stifle the dynamism 
and creative abilities of the poor. 
It is an approach which breaks all 
the ILO moulds. 

For most governments, this is 
political dynamite. It is one thing 
for the workers to defend^ them- 
selves against employers - and 
even that is harshly discouraged in 
many countries — but Blanchard 
and his team are talking about 
promoting grassroots movements 
of the poor to challenge district 
and urban authorities, land- 
owners, wholesalers and middle 
men, moneylenders: the whole 
tissue of privilege and hierarchy. 

Together, if they have their way, 
villagers and slum dwellers will be

.■.able to" stake, a more effective 
' claim for credit, seed, basic took' 
and access to markets. Unleashing 
people's abilities wifi also increase 
their confidence and, in the long 
term, their power. “When govern- 
ments talk about participation," 
says an ILO rural development 
manager, “they generally mean 
getting people to work hander. We 
mean helping them to decide for 
themselves what they want and 
need.” It is pretty subversive stuff 
.fortheUN. 

Employers and trade unionists 
■may back the plan in principle — ; 
so long as the ILO does not shift 
resources from other programmes 
(as it must) and so long as much of 
the money is channelled through 
them. But many have either been 
remote from the concerns of the 
very poor or lukewarm or even 
hostile. “These,” said a union man 
in Geneva “are the people who 
queue outside the factory gates 
each morning, waiting to grab our 
jobs if we fell sick — and ready to 
do them at half the wage." They 
do not necessarily see it in their 
.interest that governments should 
stop bulldozing shanty town 
.shacks and. start giving their 
occupants -work- permits and ac- 
cess to credit. 

Yet in feet, the ILO argues,

ANC bases in Harare, Lusaka and 
Gaberone was on one level pure 
Annie-get-your-gun politics. 
South Africa demonstrated that it 
could surpass the ANC in hitting 
enemy targets in any part of the 
region; it was a warning that if the 
Houses of Parliament in Cape 
Town or the Union Buildings in 
Pretoria were attacked, the gov- 
ernment would not hesitate to 
eradicate the ANC headquarters 
in Lusaka or anywhere else. 

On another level the govern- 
ment believes that the continuing 
unrest demands that it should 
move .beyond police methods 
towards some political solution. 
While it is adamant in hs assess- 
ment — in my view, correct —that 
there is no force around that can 
topple the South African stale in 
the. foreseeable future, the situa- 
tion. in the townships demands 
that organized black * political 
movements fill the vacuum. 

Botha and his government be- 
lieve that the attacks on the ANC 
bases will not deter but facilitate 
this process. The greatest obstacle 
to negotiation, they believe, is the

ANCs belief, shared by the- west- 
ern world, in its ability to put 
pressure on the government until 
it succumbs. Only by showing 
itself undaunted and in control, so 
the government believes, wifi 
blacks be induced to negotiate — 
not the transfer of power, as the 
ANC demands, but some com- 
promise. 

The inner circle of political 
power now realizes that a com- 
promise will entail considerably 
greater concessions — including 
the release of Nelson Mandela and 
lifting the ban on the ANC — than 
the government was prepared to 
make six or nine months ago. It 
does not entertain any hope of a 
deal with the ANC but it does 
believe that these two steps would, 
among other things, induce Chief 
.Gatsha Buthelezi. head of the 
Zulu-dominated Inkatha move- 
ment, to join in the deliberations 
of the national council which the 
government has established as a 
“pre-negotiation forum". There is 
considerable interest in National 
Party circles in a confidential 
message which Buthelezi recently 
sent to Botha expressing con- 
fidence in his ability to work, and 
even negotiate, with Mandela, but 
criticizing Oliver Tam bo, the 
ANC president, as untrustworthy. 


artisans and one-man transport 
services complement, rather than 
compete with, conventional la- 
bour. They form three quarters of 
the Third World's active popula- 
tion. Blanchard would like the co- 
operation of what the ILO is fond 
of calling “the social partners", 
but its pioneer schemes are al- 
ready relying on local activists, - 
churches and young people with 
skills and no jobs who are en- 
thused by the bottom-up philos- 
ophy involved. 

lbe ILO's determination is not 
in question. But it js hard not to 
wonder how this Utopianism is. 
going to translate into practice: 
Jack Martin, chief of the employ- 
ment division, says the. EDO is 
different “because we do have a 
tradition of working with local 
people. And the essence is that we 
art not pouring in money,- we are 
helping people to pool their own 
resources for things they want to 
do. They have more at stake than 
we do and sort out their diffi- 
culties as they occur." He and 
others are full of stories about 
.. successful entrepreneurs launched 
literally from the streetsof Kam- 
; pala with only baszc WO naming 
and .small .sums of money bor- 
rowed from relations. They know, 
however, that they are trying to 
-break new ground with unfentiliar 
, tools. ~ -- ' 

And on a large scale, even a 
strategy' based ~oh flexible ter 
. spon ses. small' sums supporting 
. local iniatives -and highly deceri- 
traiized operations — all of them 
the antithesis of normal UN 
procedure — can hardly just be 
slipped past the powers-that-be. 
Nor can it work if the ILO tries to 
dp the job itself: it will need to co- 
operate with all the voluntary 
agencies it can muster and that, 
too, has never been the UN 
agencies' strongest suit 

Blanchard replies: “Both in- 
stinctively and through bard 
analysis, I’ve been diffident about 
embarking the ILO on grandiose 
enterprises: I am no Utopianist 
and I know the world will remain 
as bad as it is for decades to 
come." But the ILO cannot turit- 
hs back on the majority, of the 
world's workers ana must there- 
fore “find new techniques to give 
free enterprise — perhaps I should 
say free iniative — its head."

anization, has never been banned; 
in the government's view Swapo's 
external wing has been all but 
crushed as a military force while, 
internally, the basis for a political 
compromise is now considered to 
be much wider precisely because 
some Swapo members have re- 
turned and involved themselves 
in the political process. 

The Commonwealth team will 
have to decide soon whether it can 
play any significant role in getting

consider Carl Joachim Friedrich's 
wise, words: negotiation, he re- 
marked needs an objective power 
balance and both parties having a 
reasonable hope of getting a 
bargain — or at least improving 
their present position. 

Two questions are paramount: 
can the Commonwealth team 
convince both the ANC and the 
government that the power bal- 
ance is such that neither side can 
achieve a military victory? And 
can a compromise solution be 
held out to both parties which at 
least is better than growing politi- 
cal anarchy and economic ruin? .

The simmering argument about 
Alliance defence policy, wh ich has 
again frothed over into: the head- . 
lines, boils down to two issues, 
one of substance and one of pine 
politics. The first — “should Brit- 
ain remain a nuclear weapon 
state?" — simply -cannot be. aiH, 
swered unanimously by tbe Alli- 
ance at present. Dr David Owen, 
supported by the SDP defence 
spokesman. John Cartwright, be- 
lieves the answer is “yes"; the 
expensive Trident order should be 
cancelled but Britain's present 
Polaris missiles should be re- 
placed by some less expensive 
system, probably sea-launched - 
cruise missiles, perhaps in coll- 
aboration with France. At the 
opposite ^end- are the anti-nuclear 
and pacifist- elements within the- 
Liberal Party who are equally 
determined that Britain should 
renounce nuclear weapons. In 
between is a wide spectrum of 
views, the SDP tending (though 
not unanimously) to “yes" and the 
Liberals (again not unanimously) 
to “no". 

The second question is how 
much this disagreement matters 
eiectorally. The leaders of both 
parties obviously started from the 
assumption that it is better to 
agree than not; hence their de- 
cision 18 months ago to set up the. 
joint commission whose report 
has now? been leaked The diffi- 
culty is that the commisskm's 
main achievement has been to 
establish- that no genuine rec- 
onciliation is possible on the 
central issue and the choice is - 
therefore between agreeing to 
disagree or papering over the 
disagreement with a fudge. 

The majority- of the commis- 
sion, including such SDP lumi- 
naries as Bill Rodgers and John 
Roper, support the fudge — a form 
of words that agrees on the 
cancellation of Trident but leaves 
the crucial question of Britain's 
nuclear status to be decided in the 
light of circumstances after the 
next election. Their motives for 
adopting this line have been either 
thattheyare terrified of the effect 
of disunity on the Alliance's 
electoral appeal or that they are 
actually soft on the nuclear issue, 
or a combination of the two. 

The minority — Cartwright arid 
one or two others — take Owen's 
view that it is better to acknowl- 
edge the disagreement openly than 
to temporise. Their argument is 
that the Alliance will lose even 
more credibility by appearing to 
dodge such a critical question than 
by openly disagreeing about the 
answer. At the back of their mind - 
is -also the - belief - that if ’ an 
ambiguous . form - of . words- 'is. - 
adopted at this eariy stage, the. 
Liberal unilateralists will have two 
whole years in which to use it as 
the justificatory basis on which to * 
build up prepare for an irredeem- 
ably anti-nuclear Alliance policy. ■ 

Of course, as other com- 
mentators have pointed out, this 
debate is -complicated by all sorts 
of personal animosities and 
historical hang-ups. It . is also 
bound up with Dr Owen's leader- 
ship and the question of who is or 


is not in favour of a merger of the 
two parties. An agreeme nt "at all 
costs” suits the Liberal metgeniK 
and those who want to cut Dr 
Owen down to size; an a greemen t 
to disagree is a visible endorse- 
ment of Owen's vjg w that im- 
portant principles still separate the 
two partners. . . _ ., 

But in the end tfiese are side 
issues. The problem, armafly re- 
. sides in the policy nsdt . Where 
nudear weapons policy is con- 
cerned, a chasm exists in the 
Uberal/SDP Alliance, as it doesm 
the -country as a whole. Since the 
■ GaiskeUite controversy 2 5 ago, the 
rational balance of the argu ment 
has not changed very much. All 
that has happened is that o n the 
one-side the need for an indepen- 
dent British deterrent has been 
strengthened fay growing, doubts 
about the reliability of the Ameri- 
can nuclear umbrella; on. the other 
side the cost of this insurance 
premium in relation to other 
objectives has greatly increased. In 
my view these new considerations 
more or less caned each othe r out 
and leave us where we .were: 
namely still in need of a minimum 
deterrent of our own. The trouble 
is that for reasons which I dis- 
cussed here three weeks ago public 
opinion is less sure that it wishes 
to pay the price. And many 
Alliance politicians, who share 
these preoccupations as wdl as 
being sensitive to their presence in 
others, are not so sure either. 

The Labour Party, through 
whose midst this rift used to ran, 
has solved its problem by aban- 
doning all territory on the nudear . 
side of-the argument to the SDP. 
Labour is at least united, whereas 
the Affiance is now stuck with the. 
divide. The question of whether 
this is a good exchange still has to 
be tested. The opinion polls, as I 
have show some move- 

ment towards a left-wing defence 
position but not enough to pro- 
vide cover for all Labour's 
unilaterist policies. In other 
words, Labour’s appearance of 
unity may have been purchased ax 
an uneconomic price. 

Would the Alliance be wise to 
pay a price of r its own for 
unanimity? Those who are in 
favour of temporising argue, natu- 
rally enough, that the comm- 
ission's fudged agreement would 
be far less costly than Labour's 
much more extreme position, and 
certainly much cheaper than a 
situation in which the two halves 
of the Alliance have different 
defence policies. But this leaves 
out of account not only the real 
conviction of many potential SDP 
voters that there must be no 

- compromising Britain’s deterrent 

- but also the horrid vulnerability of 
the commission's formula.. The 
fetal question is;- “How can the 
Affiant*- posribly^daim that it 
knows enough about the national 
interest to cancel .Trident but not 
enough to be able to decide 
.whether to remain . a. nudear 
power?" Whatever the Alliance 
does on this issue wiR be jam for 
its opponents, buz an agreement to 
disagree for the time being is 
probably the lesser political evfl.

New Delhi? No, 


The year is 1492. The scene is a 
small village in India, called 
Calcutta. A huge crowd of about 
20 people has gathered to greet the 
arrival of Christopher Columbus. 
But there is no sign of him, and 
unease is beginning to spread 
through the throng. 

1st Indian: He should be here very 
soon. It’s 1492, that was the 
arranged date. Columbus finds the 
short cut to India, to accelerate the 
spice trade. Is it not so written? 
2nd Indian: I hope he comes soon; 

I can’t hang around all day with a 
basket full of saffron. 

1st Indian: Of course, it was only 
written that he should find lbe 
short cut to the Indies, not India. 
Wherever the Indies are. 

2nd Indian: My wife has been to 
the Bast Indies. 

1st Indian: Oh, ready? Djakarta? 
2nd I nd ia n : No, she went in her 
own rickshaw. 

Note: This is a really rare pre- 
Columbian joke, dating from be- 
fore the discovery of Jamaica. 

1st Indian: I am constantly 
amazed by the way these western- 
ers keep looking for a short cut to 
India. One of my ancefeors met 
Alexander the Great yon know. 
2nd Indian: Good heavens. Did 
the great emperor say anything? 

1st Indian: Yes. “A pound of 
ginger, and a small packet of 
turmeric, please." Wefi, that wasa 
lot of money in those days. But 
then my ancestor made the mis- 
take of saying back:' “How would . 
you like a bit of fenugreek?", 

2nd Indian: Why was - that ft 
mistake? 

1st Indian: Well, Alexander 
thought he said, “How would you 
lfltea bit of fun, you.Greek?” So he 
chopped his bead off 
2nd Indian: One of my ancestors 
met Marco Polo. But all be said 
was, “Could you tdl me tee short 
ctit to China?" Which is ridicu- 
lous, as there’s no such thing as a . 
short cut fa China. 

1st Indian: I hope Columbus gets 
here soon. These Italians are so 
unreliable. 

2nd Indian: My wife's been to 
Italy. 

1st Indian: Oh, really? Genoa? 

2nd Indian: We’re tolerably wdl _ 
acquainted. - 

Note: Did Indians really stand 
around in 1492 making feeble 


music hall jokes to each other? 
Well, we can’t prove’ anything, but 

jruhand veg street nwS^y^I 
know that that's what they do now. 
Chances are things haven't 
changed natch in 500 years. And 
now back la our historical 
reconstruction! 

1st Indian: It never happens the 
other way round, you know. You 
don't find Indians going off look- 
ing for sea routes and short cuts to 
Europe. 

2nd Indian: Maybe we’ll have to, if 
Columbus doesn't get here soon. 
Maybe we’ll have to take the sniff 
to them,- and open up our own 
shops in Europe. 

1st In di an: That's ridiculous. 
What kind of shops? . . . 

2nd Indian: I don't know. Corner 
shops. Late night-opening shops! 
Shop s where people can buy 
bread, milk, evening papers and 
cheap plonk at any hour. 

1st Indian: What on earth are you 
talking about? 

2nd Indian: I don't know. It just 
seemed to make sense when I said 
iL 

Note: He did not mention 
/wefcas of cigarettes because 
Columbus had still not reached ■ 
America and. opened up the short 
tobacco route to the West 

Indi an : Hey, have you heard 
tee news? 

1st Indhm: Don’t tell me. Colum- 
bus has fallen off the edge of the 
world after alL 

3rd . Indian: Forget Columbus. • 
We've just heard that Francis 
Xavier has landed in Goa, and 
they’re buying all -the saffron and 
coriander they can get! 

1* Indian: Goal That's 2,000 •] 
miles from here. Anyone know the 
short cut to Goa? 

2as4 Indi an: How did the Por tu - 
guere get there, anyway? 

3rd mian: Via Africa. 

2 nd Africa, eh? My wife’s 
been to Africa. . 

1st Indian: Oh, really? Djibouti’ 
2nd Indian: I'm sorry, I don’t

Coming to terms with stillbirth 


■ J, -.'b! e 




-■ < ■ 


The Mazing roof of York 
Minster two years ago briefly 
brought . the whole- world's 
attention to. a. blazing row in 
the Church of England. For the 
Bishop of Du rham, the RL 
Rev. David Jenkins, had been 
consecrated in that samp Min- 
ster two days before the fire, 
and he . had questioned the 
Virgin Birth and Resurrection 
in a television interview, ft 
was not difficult for the 
world’s press to fancy that the ‘ 
mysterious li ghtning -strike 
which set the roofbuzningwas 
the Almighty getting His own 
back. _ It - was- everybody’s 
favourite topic of conversation 
for days. - * ■ 

The roof is now largely 
rebuilt; but the' Church of 
England has yet to rebuild its 
own unity after the finoie the 
bishop’s opinions caused. He 
had rather artlessly brought 
into the public domain a side- 
issue in a long-running argu- 
ment among . academic 
theologians about the relation- 
ship between doctrine -and . 
history. All over the country . 
ordinary church-gpere of un- 
sophisticated* faith were out- " 
raged. . 

It is a cliche in such circles, 
that theologians spend , much 
of their time trying to answer 
the questions which no-one is 
asking. But the bishop had 
dared to answer a real question 
which exactly caught the' 
contemporary mood of semi- 
Christian agnosticism and re- 
ligions uncertainty in the 
secular world: did the two key 
miracles at the centre of the 
Christian fitith, the Virgin - 
Birth and the Resurrection. 
reallyTiappen’ -Or to pot the 
question in its sharpest form, 
where odium tkeologicum rises - 
to its maximum: ■ did Jesus * 
really have no human father; , 
and was the tomb empty? 

It was and is the Bishop of 
Durham's sincere belief that 
Christianity not only does not 
need those two miracles, but is . 
all the' better without them, - 
since it would then be more ' 
attractive to the modem scep- 
tical mini Hte has never ; 


them on the grounds that God 

did not work that way. : 

In the press, in Parliament, 
and subsequently in the Gen- 
eral Synod, of the Church of 
England, the bishop’s views 
were roasted. It was demanded 
that the whole House of Bish- 
ops should meet to consider 
his case, and declare where it 
stood. It met, again and again, 
and . after much debating, 
redrafting, and delay produced 
yesterday’s official reply: a 
unanimous .“Yes and No”. 
Some . bishops believe the 
tomb was empty and some .do 
not; some think Jesus was 
*■ Joseph’s natural son and some 
■ that Mary’s pregnancy : was 
miraculous. Their : statement 
gave no figures of bow the 
balance , lay, though it is not 
. difficult to work out that 
Durham was in a minority. 

This plainly will not be 
enough to put out the fire. 
Next month- the Genera] 
Synod returns to York to 
spend a whole Sunday debat- 
ing the- bishops' position (or 
positions); '-'and pass its own 
judgement. Those who wanted 
an unequivocal repudiation of 
the Durham doubts will ex- 
press their indignation that the 
church’s “purple trade union” 
has closed ranks to protect 
him. It would be a mis- 
judgement on their part to 
press their case much harder, 
however. They have gained a 
sort of. victory; and there is 
room for compromise. Those 
-who agree with the Bishop of 
Durham, on the other hand, - 
will find the cover the bishops 
have given him a little too trnn 
for their comfort 
In the long-term struggle 
between doctrinal liberals and 
doctrinal conservatives, there* 
is. no mistaking the serious 
defeat the liberals have! suf- 
fered at the bishops' collective 
bands. The offirialresponse in 
detail is far from sympathetic 
to him; it reads Tather like a 
judge's summing up for a 
conviction, ending oddly with 
a direction to . the jury to 
acquit ! : ... 

The bishops’ meetings were 


actually said he didnot beheye . secret, buta key rolein shaping 
them, - just that fee doubted : fee outcome .was undoubtedly 


played by the Bishop of Salis- 
bury, Dr. John Baker, chair- 
man of the church’s Doctrine 
Commission and therefore the 
church’s official expert on such 
matters. An argument that 
apparently appeals to him is 
that if Christ’s tomb was not 
empty after the Resurrection, 
those disciples who said it was 
must have been -lying. The 
accounts in the Gospels are too 
detailed to be explained as 
symbolic myths; and stories 
that the body had been stolen 
are specifically denied by the 
Apostles. Salisbury evidently 
won that part of the argument 
handsomely: the point about 
bung is spelled out in the 
statement. Indeed, Salisbury 
emerged as the principal 
drafter of the final version, and 
it must surely have been his 
own first draft he was working 
on. 

It was softened, neverthe- 
less, with reassuring words 
about not stifling debate and 
not running away from con- 
flict so that Durham himself 
could sign it. It is no secret he 
was far from happy about the 
document Nor is it odd that 
he should be wary of a 
document that concludes that 
Durham is deviant but not so 
deviant as to be damned. The 
statement itself points out that 
the Church of England is much 
too civilised to go hounding 
after heretics. 

The exercise has established 
one thing dearly: that belief in 
miracles, at least where they 
are central to the faith, is 
thoroughly intellectually res- 
pectable in the church and, 

- room for disagreement not- 
withstanding, still holds the 
high ground. Even the bishops 
. themselves are probably a bit 
surprised at this. In the current 
sceptical climate . they have 
tended to be a little coy about 
admitting to views which 
some of the most fashionable 
theologians have been mock- 
ing for a generation. But with a 
much more conservative: style 
of doctrine coming from the 
Vatican under the present 
Pope, -and now from foe 
Anglican bishops too,-. liberal 
; theokrgyis definitely in retreat j 
' on mast fronts. • 


From Dr Stanford Bourne and Dr 
Emanuel Lewis 

Sir. We fear your brief report (May 
31) could mislead: “A young 
mother killed herself because doc- 
tors gave her her stilborn baby to 
cuddle." It is very rare for a 
woman to regret having held her 
dead baby, whereas the reverse is 
[ tragically common — parents who 
never cease to grieve for having 
the chance. 

This suicide may have occurred 
in spite ot rather than because of, 
this young woman being given the 
chance to cuddle her stillborn 
child. We sympathise with .foe 
bereft family who feel the hospital 
blundered and the feelings of 
responsibility and failure will bear 
heavily on everyone involved. 

However, our concern now is 
lest the wording of the report may 
influence obstetric units to put the 
clock back. Until 1968 medical 
writings took no cognisance of the 
psychological injury following 
stillbirth. 

The problem is the blind spot, 
the bewildering non-event, the 
death where there has been no 
living person, the ailment without 
a disease. Patients, doctors and 
nurses all tend to be engulfed In 
blankness and the events get tost 
in a black hole in the mind, neither 
remembered nor property forgot- 
ten. 

Mourning may be blocked and 
the sequelae range from immedi- 
ate mental. iHn^cs to marital 
breakdown, difficulty with other 
children and delayed vulnerability 
to subsequent losses and crises. 

There is particular danger dur- 
ing the next pregnancy, whereas 
everyone hopes that a natural cure 
of the wound may be expected. 
The tragic case reported under- ‘ 
lines bow great the danger is. 

Formerly, a stillborn baby was 
-whisked away, foe mother isolated 
in a private room until ffarfmqjBrt 
from hospital and a collusive 


the 

no 


silence would dose over 
events. There was usually 
proper funeral, no marked grave 
and no name. These non-events 
are almost impossible to “take 
in", the process of mourning 
cannot begin in a healthy way and 
disproportionate mental distur- 
bance results. 

We have urged a policy of 
making the events more real and 
tangible wherever possible, and we 
think, that normal pain is more 
easily overcome than unnatural, 
aching emptiness and isolation. 
Yours sincerely, 

S. BOURNE, .

Front Mrs Carolyn Deaiey 
Sir, I read, with increasing dis- 
tress, your report (May 31) 
whereby a father blamed his 
daughter’s suicide on her being 
given her stillborn baby to hold. I, 
too, nad a stillborn baby last year. 
My daughter was washed, dressed, 
photographed and given to me to 
hold. She was later baptised by a 
local clergyman who also con- 
ducted her funeral service. 

Stillbirth is a devastating experi- 
ence; it cannot, it most not. be 
treated by anyone as a non-event. 
The bona between mother and 
child is formed during the long 
months of pregnancy, not by 
giving the baby to the mother to 
hold after birth. Each child is 
unique and cannot be replaced. It 
must be identified and grieved for. 
Only then can the parents come to 
terms with what has happened and 
boikl a Dew future for themselves 
and their children.

Trial by jury . 

From Mr Stephen Agio- 
Sir, I note with interest your report 
(May 22) that the Prosecuting 
Sohdtors’ Society is calling for the 
abolition of defendants’ right to 
trial by jury. 

The criticism that the present 
system allows a defendant to 
postpone the evil day by request- 
ing Crown Court trial and thus 
overburden the Crown Courts and 
waste public money is entirely 
valid. Indeed, it is a common 
tactic often tacitly approved by the 
defendant’s lawyers. 

However, the problem can be 
rgehr.' solved without : adopting 
the' drastic measures that have 


who plead not guilty will be given 
the option of a Crown Court triaL 

Secondly, defendants who 
change their plea once the matter 
comes before the Crown Court 
should not receive the fuB dis- 
count on sentence available for a 
guilty plea, unless they can explain 
to the court the cucumstanoes that 
brought about the change of heart. 

These two reforms would not 
prevent a determined defendant 
from delaying the administration 
of justice, bat it would provide 
real incentives for defendants who 
intend to plead guilty in the final 
event to do so earlier rather than 
later. Furthermore, it would pre- 
dude lawyers from anquicsring jo 
such delaying tactics to the same 
extent as appears to be the case 


THE MAKING OF THE PRESIDENCY 


The AhgloTrisfcltafian rain.-; ;; Tfjfoere .were any lingering 
paigri, announced this week* to- - doubts, they must have been 

dispelled by Mr Kenneth 
.Clarice’s robust performance 
yesterday in Luxembourg. In 
calling for action, not words, 
he was. perhaps indulging in 
wishful thinking. The Euro- 
pean public will be forgiven if 
they display a little inbred 
scepticism.. But .the Employ- 
ment Minister was sounding 
the righrcalL . 


create jobs in Europe is .im- 
portant almost irrespective of 
whether ornot it works. In the’ 
first place, it identifies the 
European Community with 
the fight against unemploy- 
ment which many people be- 
lieve to be Europe's pre- 
eminent problem. Secondly, it 
provides a focal point for foe 
British presidency of the Euro- 
pean Council, which begins in 
less than a month. From 
initially expecting too much 
from Britain’s third six-month 
turn in the chair, marketeers 
have recently shown signs of 
expecting too little. Whitehall 
as well as Brussels has needed 
its imagination stirred. 

Mrs. Thatcher’s enthusiasm 
for what is called “enterprise 
culture” builds upon the Brit- 
ish initiative on de-regulating 
European business, which she 
launched at the Council meet- 
ing in March last year. The 
completion of the internal 
market in all its aspects by 
1992, foe removal of national 
barriers' to the free movement 
of services as well as of trade, 
and the lifting of restrictive 
legislation from transport — 
these are causes close, to the 
heart of this Government, and 
rightly so. ■ ' 

Such measures should in 
themselves, help to expand 
Europe’s labour market and 
ease the free movement of 
people within it But that 
target has needed to be more 
sharply- defined before becom- 
ing a theme for the British 
presidency. The new campaign 
could do .'that 


So, too, was the Chancellor 
the day before in describing 
theme number two — reform 
of the Common Agricultural 
Policy (CAP). In this case, the 
target is. clear enough, though 
success in hitting it could 
prove elusive. Farm, support 
prices have been cut signifi- 
cantly during the present de- 
cade and fanners have; been! 
squeezed. But advances in 
agricultural technology are. 
bumping up production rates 
to levels; which remain un- 
acceptable,., and there is a 
general acknowledgment that 
a broader-based and more 
positive policy than the 1 mere ' 
application of . economic dis- 
incentives is needed to solve 
thejiroblem. 

The encouragement of alter- 
native crops in the burgeoning 
European wheatfields, and the 
- conversion of agricultural land 
to other uses are among the 
ideas now being pushed within 
fee' Community. The orir 
equivocal British apprpach to 
Europe’s food mountains 


T path. MrLaws^n’s promise- to : 
the National Economic 
Development Council that the 
Government would - use its 
presidential tour to work for a 
restructuring of the system, 
was no less welcome than 
yesterday’s pledge by Mr 
Clarke. 

Doubts remain over how 
much Britain . can actually 
achieve during foe next six 
months. For one thing, the 
presidency entails a great deal - 
of managerial work, notably 
negotiations on the 1987 
Community budget Britain 
will have the task to fix 
agendas and timetables for 
ministerial business during the 
period. The opportunity to 
make progress towards fun- 
damental- reform has been 
helped by the adoption of 
continuous planning, under 
which the past-president (Hol- 
land) and the forthcoming one 
(Belgium) are drawn into the

Verdict on Botham 

From the Director cf Action on" 
Alcohol Abuse 

Sir , The official reaction to the 
revelation of Ian Botham's use of 
cannabis once again illustrates the 

( contradiction bordering on hypoo- 
• risy which exists at the heart ofthe 
British establishment with regard 
to recreational dregs. 

The main platform of concern 
mounted by those who wish to 
“make an example" of Botham 
relates to the influence which such 
folk heroes have upon the young. 
'What is so puzzling, however, is 
why those who make such stric- 
tures are so selective. 

For example, the harmful ef- 
fects of alcohol on young and 
inexperienced people is dear for 
all to see. Among the under 21 age 
group, representation in the al- 
cohol offence statistics rose from 
12 per cent to 21 per cent between 
1964 and 1984. Over 50 per cent of 
people killed in drink driving 
accidents are under 25, and breath 
test failures among the 16 to 19 age 


group went up by 23 per cent 
between 1983 and 1984. 

And yet if he chose to do so 
Botham could play football next 
season sponsored by the drinks 
industry and run on to the pitch 
every Saturday bedecked in 
advertisments for this our most 
potent depressive dreg without 
committing or creating any of- 
fence whatever. 

No one with a real concern for 
the future of this country would 
underestimate the potential dan- 
ger associated with the misuse of 
illicit drugs. The feet is, however, 
that for every death associated 
with hard drugs more than one 
hundred deaths can be linked with 
alcoboL In so roundly condemn- 
ing the use of one, why is there 
such silence about the other?

Anglican morale 

From the Rev Arthur T. Redman 
Sir, Recently your Religious 
AffedrsCorrespondent suggested 
that the morale of the Anglican 
laity is low. It is not tree. As a par- 
ish priest and Warden of Readers 
for the diocese of Derby, I am in 
daily contact with lay people and 
find most of them in good heart 
especially where they are daring 
in the ministry of the church. 

Moreover, the part played by 
women in synodical government, 
as members of parochial church 
councils, as churchwardens, in lay 
ministry and in liturgy (women 
servers are commonplace) has 
grown and is growing. Where lay 
people are frustrated and morale is 


"low is when their gifts are -not 
recognised and used, but they 
should, can and do make their 
voices beard. 

No doubt these are the voices 
Gifford Longley has heard. 
Nevertheless his view is distorted. 
While there is no room for 
complacency, morale is higher in 
the Church of England than your 
correspondent suggests. One ofthe 
Church of England’s delicate and 
important tasks is to accentuate 
the positive in Church life without 
throwing away its critical ap- 
proach. 

Yours sincerely, 

ARTHUR REDMAN,

Nuclear stockpile 

From the Chairman of the Central 
Electricity Generating Board . 
Sir, Mr Lowry (May 28) accuses 
me of disowning evidence given 
by the CEGB to the SizeweD 
public ' inquiry. This is totally 
untrue. This misconception ap- 
pears to be based on an mterviewl 
gave in the TV Eye television 
programme on March 20 in which 
I said plutonium produced in fee 
early years of operation of the first 
CEGB nuclear stations had gone 
into fee defence stockpile: 

It Is well known that prior to 
1 969, fee year when CEGB for the 
first time retained ownership of its 
plutonium, -plutonium - produced 
in CEGB stations was exchanged 
by fee UK GovemmenTfbr en- 
riched uranium from fee United 
States under a defence agreement. 
It has always been clear that this 
plutonium must have been in a. 
military stockpile. • 

It has also been made- clear 
through statements by the US 
Government, which have been 
reported to Parliament,' that they 


have not used this plutonium in 
weapons, and that this continues 
lo be their policy. There was 
therefore nothing new in what I 
said on March 20 and it was in no 
way inconsistent with the CEGB 
evidence given by Mr John Baker 
at the Sizewell inquiry. 

Concerning the wider issue of 
secrecy’ raised by Mr Lowry, whilst 
fee existence of fee barter arrange- 
ment wife the USA is public 
knowledge, the amount of CEGB 
plutonium involved is soL Al- 
though fee plutonium has re- 
mained in civil use,, the uranium 
received in exchange has been 
used for defence purposes in 
Britain. In the interests of national 
security therefore fee Govern- 
ment nas not been prepared for 
information to be disclosed on the 
amounts which were bartered.

Doubts on basis 
of UGC ratings 

From Professor Peter Robson 
Sir. As a member ofa substantially 
under funded department never- 
theless placed amongst fee top 10 
in fee subject for leaching by a 
recently cited survey in fee The 
Times Higher Education Supple- 
ment, ! would like to be able to 
disagree with fee thesis of fee 
Master of Downing in his letter 
(May 29) but 1 cannot- At the same 
time. I feel that it is a pity feat he 
should have confined his critical 
comments to teaching (his italics). 

This might lead some readers to 
suppose feat it can be concluded 
that recent UGC gram adjust- 
ments are based on a proper 
review of university research. 
There must be grave doubts as to 
whether there has yet been a 
proper review of either university 
teaching or university research. 

Certain big spenders have no 
doubt been looked at closely. As 
few fee bulk of subjects in fee 
humanities and fee social sciences 
which do not normally foil into 
that category, the extremely crude 
methods laid down by fee UGC 
for the preparation and sub- 
mission of research profiles (list 
five representative publications 1 .) 
and the absence of any require- 
ment or opportunity to suhmit 
comprehensive statements of the 
scale of research effort, must 
surely have resulted in fee pro- 
vision of a seriously defective 
database. 

Moreover, there is nothing to 
suggest feat fee UGC has at- 
tempted to standardise sub- 
missions even crudely or lo use 
any of fee indicators of signifi- 
cance that educational research 
has suggested (such as citations) in 
order to provide a less subjective 
and more systematic basis for its 
immensely difficult and im- 
portant task. 

In combination these limita- 
tions must make even those who 
sympathise with the objectives 
wonder whether any of this ex- 
ercise in casual empiricism de- 
serves to be given much weight for 
fee purpose of grant distribution 
or making judgements on fee scale 
and quality of research effort.

From Professor A. P. Thiriwall 
Sir, In fee recent UGC evaluation 
of university departments, my 
impression is feat, there has not 
been sufficient normalisation for 
size differences. Economics at 
Kent, for example, is regarded as 
“average” which is probably right 
judged by the absolute amount of 
research grant money attracted 
and the absolute quantity of 
research (let no one pretend that 
evaluation was based on fee best 
five research papers). 

Independent research at the 
University of Lancaster, however, 
shows that Kent's economics 
department ranks second by fee 
number of research papers pub- 
lished per member of staff over fee 
last five years in fee 20 most read 
economic journals in fee United 
Kingdom. 

By this criterion Kent econom- 
ics is outstanding. I think it would 
be a pity, particularly from fee 
students' point of view, if good 
small departments in any disci- 
pline were written off.

Stag hunt decision 

From Councillor Dr Glyn Court 
Sir, Before your readers form the 
opinion that the members of 
Somerset County Council are 
either dedicated deer-lovers or 
Actaeons of the deepest dye, it is 
worth setting the record straight. 

For reasons which you have 
explained (report. May 24) fee 
council, after two long and some- 
times intemperate debates, re- 
solved not to excercise its 
undoubted right to ban fee bunt 
from its land for fee time being — 
and this last phrase should give 
pause to any who claim the 
decision as a victory. 

Between sound on one side and 
on the other, the deer stand 
’less, and the County 
Council's concern is to find the 
best . means to conserve the deer 
and improve their strain, to 
safeguard the peripheral farming 
activities, to protect and enhance 
nature on the Quantocks and — 
herein lies the problem for which a 
solution must be found — to 
reconcile ail these often conflicting 
interests.

ON THIS DAY 


JUNE 6 1876 

Abdul Aziz became Sultan of 
\ Turkey in 1861 on the death of his 
brother. In 1876 the country was 
bankrupt and hieing a crisis in 
foreign affairs, a situation which 
vmpted a number of ministers to I 
demand the deposition of the 
(SufittR. Abdul Ajuz acquiesced and \ 
departed, leaving his 
turad to succeed him. A 
_ f later the old Sultan 
committed suicide, an act which 
aggravated the mental instability 
of Murad who reigned aniy three 
months before he was declared 
insane and deposed. 


THE SULTAN'S DEPOSITION 


(From our Special Correspondent) 
PERA.MAY30 

We are all stunned by the 
intelligence we received here this 
morning, at 10 o’clock, on landing 
at Karakeui Bridge from the 
Buynkdere and Therapia steamer. 
We set out from our summer 
quarters in a perfect deluge of rain, 
some of us trying to make out the 
meaning of the reports of cannon 
which bad been beard from Stam- 
boul, breaking the silence of the 
dead hours of the night. We 
stopped at Bebek, where the 
present as well as the late Grand 
Vizier have their yoiis, or country 
bouses, and were there joined by 
the Private Secretary of Mehemet 
Rushdi, who whispered that a great 
revolution had been accomplished 
in night — that Sultan Abdul 
Aziz had been deposed, and his 
nephew, Murad Effendi, eldest son 
of Sultan Abdul Medjid, had been 
proclaimed. The news as it circu- 
lated on board the steamer was 
variously commented upon, and 
became the subject of friendly bets, 
but on the whole obtained little 
credit. Presently, however, we were 
told to look out as we approached 
the Imperial palaces at Dolma- 
batebeb and Cheragan; mid there, 
sure enough, as for as we could see 
through the blinding rain, we saw 
all the ironclads and other vessels 
riding at anchor pauoises as if for a 
great festivity. We landed, and as 
we looked up towards the Tower of 
the Bourse, we perceived that the 
hinds, which were down at 11 last 
evening, had now risen to 16 32. As 
we crossed the bridge, on our way 
to Galata, we met several sqauds of 
the Imperial mounted guard in foO 
uniforms and with gold-laced 
horse-trappings, going up at a brisk 
gallop to StambouL On arriving at 
the British Con sulate we wwi* out 
that the Proclamation of Mured as 
Sultan had certainly been made in 
foe night, fee event being an- 
nounced by firing 100 cannon; and 
there were discordant rumours 
either that Sultan Abdul Aziz was 
dead — in feet, had been killed — or 
that he had been imprisoned mH 
hidden somewhere, probably on 
board one of his ironclads. His life 
or death, however, would not in 
any manner affect the success of 
this astounding revolution, for he 
has not one friend in the worid. and 
his very eunuchs would not Kit a 
finger in his defence. The Throne 
is vacant so for as he is concerned, 
and the words “The old Sultan is 
dead; Long life to the new Sultan” 
would be morally true, even if 
Abdul Aziz were to survive the 
terrible events of last night- He is 
certainly dead as a Sovereign, and 
the eight or more millions of 
Turkish lire which he has been 
hoarding for years are not unlikely 
to be brought into light for foe 
public good. I may add, however, 
that the intelligence of foe death of 
Sultan Abdul Aziz is most likely to 
turn out correct, as Islamism does 
not allow the existence of two 
Khalife, or successors of the 
Prophet, at the same time. . . 

That the Sultan should not be 
allowed to live, or at least not 
allowed to reign, is what Turks, 
Greeks, and people of all desses 
and conditions, and even members 
of fee present Cabinet, have been 
for a long time proclaiming openly 
almost at every street comer. As I 
telegraphed to you yesterday, the 
Sultan himself bad been for a long 
time in expectation of fee fete 
which awaited him, and 
endeavoured to evade it by perpet- 
ually shifting his residence, by 
avoiding fee necessity of appearing “ 
before the public on his way to 
Mosque on Fridays, or by putting 
off his attendance from noon to a 
later hour, and by hiding as he best 
could in the most secret apart- 
ments of his Palace. He had also 
taken the precaution of shutting up 
Murad Effendi and all his other 
nephews, and beeping a dose 
watch upon their movements, 
though lavishing upon them all 
demonstrations of honour and 
affection, possibly wife intent to 
do away with them whenever an 
occasion to save himself by sacri- 
ficing their lives might arise. 

The report of the assassination 
of fee Sultan, if it be confirmed, as 
1 little doubt, will create a painful 
sensation in Christian countries, 
where it will be said that the 

conspirators should have wrought 
out their purpose by an open 
insurrection instead of staining 
what might be a good cause by a 
crime which the helplwa and 
forlorn position of fee Sultan 
might have rendered unnecessary. 

I do not know whether their guih 
may be extenuated by pleading the 
precepts of the Koran winch forbid 
opposition to fee Sultan so-long as 
be can withstand it, and, in oU 
words, make it less a crime to kill I 

than to rise in arms ugainct him. 

News travels fast 

From Mr J. F. Drysdale 
Sir. I am most impressed by 'fee 
leap in technology which enables 
fee report in The Times of 
Scoiland’s first World Cup tie to 
land on my doorstep less than 
seven hours after fee final whistle. 

At least now I can catch up on 
my sleep and leave the bad news lo 
be consumed with the porridge. 
Yours faithfully.

OBITUARY 

DAME HELEN GARDNER 

Distinguished contributions 
to literary studies 

Dame Helen Gardner, 

DBE FBA. FRSL. Merton 
Professor ofEnglish Literature 
at ibe University of Oxford 
from 1966 to 1975, died on 
June 4. She-was 78. 

Helen Louise Gardner was a 
distinguished academic critic, 
who, as an editor and an 
interpreter, made enduring 
contributions to literary stud- 




ies. 

Perhaps the most important 
of her work as an editor lies in 

her - two editions of John 
Donne, which set new stan- 
dards both in point of the text 
and the commentary. The 
New Oxford Book of English 
Verse 1250-1950 , was also a 
radical reassessment of the 
ftekL 

Asa critic she was original 
and humane and her dislike of metaphysical poets. Her.ecD- 
fashi ons and authoritarian tions of Donne's Divine Po- 



systems is well set forth in the 
series of lectures collected as 
The Business qf Criticism. 

Boro in 1908, Dame Helen 
was educated at the North 
London Collegiate School and 


arts (1952), and of the Elegies 
and Songs and Sonnets ojf 
John Donne (1965), were a 
marked advance even on Sir 
Herbert Grierson’s edition

After a fourth year in Ox- (1965) originated in the Aiex-

after an interlude at Royal 
Holloway CoHege, for seven 
happy years. 

The Birmingham English 
School under Ernest de Selin- 
court and A. M. D. Hughes 
was one of the best in the 
country, and she counted 
herself fortunate to have spent 
her early years us a teacher in 
such good company. 

Bui in 1941, she was called 
bade to St Hilda's to succeed 
her old tutor, Eleanor Rooke, 
whom she described as “a 
tutor ofgezuus”; and while she 
was ottered more than one 
chair of En g lish , at St Hilda’s 
she remained, taking a full 
share in enhancing the status 
of that college, exercising 
upon students an influence as 
powerful as it was beneficial. 

She exchanged a tutorial 
fellowship for a professorial 
when in 1954 she was elected 
to the new university reader- 
ship in Renaissance literature. 

She suffered a disappoint- 
ment in 1957 when she was 
not elected to die Merton 
professorship ofEnglish litera- 
ture at Oxford, this being 
before die alteration of the 
regulations which made easier 
the _ election of women to 
chairs. .

In 1972 appeared the suc- 
cessor to Sir Arthur Quilter

Helen had been working for 
foe previous 10 years. 

The New Oxford Book of 
English Verse, which extended 
foe coverage of its predecessor 
from 1918 to 1950, was in no 
sense a revision of either of 
Q's versions, which had ap- 
peared in 1901 and 1939. A 
completely fresh survey of 
English verse from 1250 to 
1950, it reflected much of foe

Science report 

Soviet self-cure for 
appendix sufferers 

By a Special Correspondent 

One hmdred years after the endoscope to the area to be

that patients sufilmng fimn of X-rays and for manometry,

rnstead of gomg to hospital for jfe in the inflamed region,

veshebensk Medical Institute identified, the . pneumo- 


in the Urals, made that fore- 
cast after completing a re- 
search programme concerned 
with foe early diagnosis and 
treatment of appendicitis. 

He found that in the Soviet 
Union the majority of appendi- 
citis patients were in foe 20 to 
SO age gronp and that, despite 
the most modern methods of 
dfejpiesis, 15 per cent of all 
cases were not confirmed din- 
ing surgery. Now, Professor 
Knfikaad his 

to have developed a method 
which will identify the source 
of foe inflammation «nl re- 
move it without the need for an 
operation. 

That can only be done by 
first examining the inner 
membranes of the appendix, 
using an advanced ecioscope 
capable of inspecting the cavi- 
ties of internal organs. The 
Soviet researchers have de-* 

signed such an instrtmientand 
called it a pneumo-intubator. 

The device, controlled and 
godded, by compressed

Professor KnliLig convinced 
that the new process will 
drastically reduce foe number 
of ajipendicectomies, although 
it trill not exclude them alto- 
gether. Patients treated with 
the new derice by him leave 
hospital on the day of admis- 
sion and go bad: to work 
within 48 hoars. An additional 

benefit is in the cost of the new 
treatment: a mae 15 per cent 
of conventional surgery. 

The Soviet team is certain 
that its work has applications 
in other medical areas. It Is

delegate of the University 
Press. In 1958 she was elected 
a Fellow of the British Acade- 
my and later served on its 
council 

In 1961, she was appointed 
by the Prime Minister as a 
member of the committee to 
inquire into higher education 
under ' the- chai rmanshi p of 
Lord Robbins. Much of her 
lime was spent in meetings in 
London and in visits to uni- 
versities al home and abroad. 
In connection with her ser- 
vices to this committee she 
was appointed CBE in 1962. 

In 1965 she was elected to 
the Merton professorship on 
foe retirement of Professor 
Nevill Coghill with effect from 
October 1 966: in consequence 
of foe arrangements matte in 
1 960 for the holding of fellow- 
ships by women professors she 
became a fellow of Lady 
Margaret Hall and was elected 
to an honorary fellowship of 
St Hilda's. 

She wrote one of foe best 
interpretations of the poetry of 
T. S. Eliot (1949), and her The 
Composition of Four Quartets 
(1978) used, fbr the first time, 
Eliot's working drafts of these 
poems. 

She will be especially re- 
membered by the work which 
she did on the seventeenth 
century, principally on the 


from the task of the antholo- 
gist, The New Oxford Book of 
English Verse was a compre- 
hensive statement of this 
century’s assessment of its 
literary heritage. 

That she belonged to no one 
“school” of criticism will be 
apparent to readers of her 
Riddle Memorial Lectures, on 
The Limits of Literary Criti- 
cism (1956), and she never 
succumbed to fashion. For 
example,, though a devout 
Christian, she attacked those 
critics who perverted 
Shakespeare’s plays by turning 
them into Christian allegories. 

She had a gift for making 
and keeping mends (of which 
she had many) in various 
countries and walks of life. 
Her services as a lecturer were 
much sought after, and she 
paid highly successful visits to 
France, Germany and the 
United States. 

Nor was her appeal merely 
to academic audiences. She 
was widely read, quick-witted 
and vivacious, always lucid in 
exposition, gifts winch'served 
her well in her talks for the 
BBC and her appearances on 
The Critics programme. 

In 1967 foe was appointed 
DBE, and foe received honor- 
ary DLirts from the Universi- 
ties of Durham (1960) and 
Birmingham (1970). 


GUNNAR BJORNSTRAND 


one of 

Sweden’s most prolific and 
versatile actors of stage and 
screen and a prominent mem- 
ber oflngmar Bergman’s pool 
of film actors, has died in 
Stockholm. He was 77. 

Bjornstrand trained for the. 
stage at the school of the Royal 
Dramatic Theatre, making his 
professional d£bul like many 
a Swedish theatrical novice, at 
the Swedisb-spealting City 
Theatre of Vasa, in Finland. 

He made more than 110 
films and appeared in almost 
as many stage roles during an 
active life that was partly 
interrupted 16 yean ago by a 


Between Vasa in 1933 and a 
four-year spell as a member of 
the Stockholm Chy Theatre to 
1972, Bjornstrand regularly 
appeared on the Swedish 
st^e, first at Oscars in Stock- 
holm and, after a year it the 
Royal Dra m a t i c , in various 
theatres in the capital and in 
the regions. 

A master of both comedy 
and serious drama, he was 
much admired as a high

former. .After his debut in

The Trip to Bountiful began life as a 
teleplay in 1953 and went on to 
become an enduring stage favourite 
on the strength of the central role, 
which provides an irresistible show- 
piece for an older actress. Lillian Gish 
created the part on American televi- 
sion and went on to play it on 
Broadway and extensive tours. Geral- 
dine Page's recreation in the new 
screen version, directed by Peter 
Masterson, understandably won her 
this yearns Best Actress Oscar. 

Adapting his own play for the 
scree n, Horton- Foote — who has also 
written such wholly cinematic films 
as To Kill a Mocking Bird nod Tender 
Mercies — elected to leave h virtually 
untouched.. The film is still plainly 
structured as .five stage scenes •— . 
demonstrating that it can pay to leave 
well alone, and that a good play well 
filmed can be more satisfying than a 
hybrid. ■ 

The stay is simple, well construct-, 
ed and earned by arresting dialogue 
in the old, , rather formal idiom of the 
South. Suffering all the inriigq jftie$ of 
old nee, infirmity and dependence, 
Carrie- Watts shares a two-room 
apartment with her adored, cowed 
son and his shrifl, shallow, bickering 
wife. One day, with S3.85 and a 
secreted pension cheque, die takes off

ownwho befriends Mrs Wans on her Uam N^fis anTS^ TS, 6 ?™ 


journey. 

The film is dominated, though, by 
Geraldine Page's lour-de-force as the 
shaky old lady, looking in her cotton 
frock like an iR-stuffed mattress. It is 
easy to believe that her hymn-singing, 
pouting and tricks of hiding her 
. pension • cheque get on her daughter- 
in-law’s nerves, not to speak of the 
distaste she injects into the mere 
raunciaiion of Jessie Mae’s name. 
Bui the performance also illuminates, 
invivid flas he s, the pleasures and 
disappointments of an entire lifetime 
past, mid the dignity and innocence 
and values of a lost way of life. Lillian 
Gish is said to have been at once 
sharper and more spiritual Geraldine 
Page's Mrs Watts is earthy, touching, 
never easily sentimental, and 
tnumpbant. 

fiuwed by Colin Gregg, whose 
memorable first feature was Remem- 
brance, and scripted from his own 
novel by Bernard MacLaverty, who 
wrote Cal, Lamb is an interesting, 
well-made, but finally rather puzzling 
fable. It is the story of a young priest 
and teacher in an Irish Catholic 
reform school, whose wavering faith

This strange little tragicomedy 
requires us to accept a peculiar degree 

of naivety in the hero, as well as a 
hue-and-cry that seems remarkably 
dilatory in the light of current media 
fascination with child abduction. 

. That it almost compels the neces- 


personality and makes credible the 
innocence of the father-son relation- 
ship that grows up between the 
runaways, and Ian Barmen is a 
chilling scourge of the Lord. The film 
reaUy belongs, though, to Hugh 
O Conor, a three-foot child with the 
eyes and ears of a marmoset, a 
shocking vocabulary and a proud, 
admirable incorrigibility. 

Menahem Golan is the only great 
mogul in cinema history who not 
only knows how to direct films but 
actually goes on doing so even while 
ruling a movie empire on which the 
sa n nev er sets. The Delta Force is the 
supreme demonstration that the film 
istbe man. It is energetic, tough, 
impatient, never pausing in its trajec- 
loiy or lingering over tiresome de- 
tails. If a character gets too 
complicated to explain, he may well 
disappear between one shot and the 
next. The American shock unit of the 
title arrive in Beirut from the sea with 
no more than their frogman suits, but 
in no time conjure from the air an 
impressive convoy of war vehicles, as 
well as uniforms and a mota-cylce 
with James Bond optional extras — 
including rockets which Chuck Nor- 
ris lets off from behind him [n 
symbolic gestures of disdain. • 

This, comic book action fantasy, - 
with all foe obligatory gun-battles, 
explosions and car chases, is append- 
ed as the denouement to a reasonably 
realistic recreation of last summer's 
Athens airliner hijack. The real event, 
of coarse, ended in negotiation and 
the release of the hostages, but that 
would hardly make for thrills and the 
ending has been changed to give the 
Delta Force suitably violent work; 
“So long, sucker” murmurs Chuck 


Bath Festival 


The film is currently attracting 
sizeable audiences, mainly of young 
males, who, though they may laygh at 
it, clearly find the thrills more 
satisfying than the jaded formulas of 
latter-day James Bonds. In the pro- 
cess, too, they get a stiff dose of crude 
but effective political indoctrination, 
for though the film may be somewhat 
wanting dramatically, it is sure where 
its sympathies lie. 

America's best friend, the film 
repeatedly emphasizes, is Israel — 
where the film was shot in the G. and 
G. studio. Menahem Golan is with- 
out doubt a new force in educating 
the young people of the West. 

He is also able to command an all- 
star cast the bullet-proof Chuck 
Connors (who already saved America 
from Soviet invasion for Cannon in 
Invasion USA.Y Shelley Winters, 
without whom no hijack or disaster 
movie would be complete; Lee Mar- 
vin, way past retirement age for 
active service; and Hanna Schy gulla, 
who is not the sort of air hostess one 
would be happy to find on board. 

Israel is currently prominent on the 
London film scene. Goodbye Now 
York is a comedy written, directed 
and acted by Amos Kollek, son of the 
Mayor of Jerusalem (who mairay a 
jokey walk-on appearance) about a 
duzy New York lady who sets out for 
Paris but ends up in Tel- Aviv, by 
mistake. Kollek is a pleasant comic 
actor, but his directorial debut shows 
him very clumsy in his other assign- 
ments. The comedy is predictable, 
with Julie Hagerty as a spoiled 
American battling with Kibbutz life; 
and the travelogue element is awk- 
wardly stuffed in. 

David Robinson 


Back in foe spring when 
Rosalind Plowright was sing- 
ing roles as heavy - and as 
different - as Leonora 
(Trovaiore)) and Sen la (Dutch- 
man) in rapid succession, it 
was suggested on this page 
that she might be asking a bit 
too much of herself. And so, 
alas, ii has turned out. A week 
ago exhaustion forced her to 
retire from the Coliseum's 
revival of Donizetti's Mary 
Stuart. 

She was due to switch to the 
title role after being a fiery and 
imperious Elizabeth I to Janet 
Baker’s Mary in the past. And 
the Coliseum had planned to 
perform the opera as Donizet- 
ti wote it. with two rival 
sopranos rather than with a 
soprano and a mezzo as has 
become the norm. Plowright’s 
retirement left the ENO a 
double problem; there are not 
many Mary Stuarts around 
and foe soprano variety are in 
even shorter supply. 

By good luck, smart detec- 
tive work or. more probably, a 
combination of foe two foe 
ENO came up, for foe opening 
performances at least, with 
Jenny Drivala. bom in foe 
Peioponnese. She is a consid- 
erable discovery for London, 
although foeEuropean reputa- 
tion is well established. Physi- 
cally. she and Plowright could 
not be farther apart: Jenny 
Drivala is pint-sized, a second 
Gasdia, as is revealed when 
Mary strips down to a simple 
orange shift in foe final scene 
before her walk to the 
exectutioner's block. But both 
sopranos share foe dark hued 
tones in foe middle and lower 1 
register which go admirably 1 
with Donizetti's melancholy, 1 
isolated heroine. 1

„ The voice is not large,

musicaiiiy and is rarely sub- 
jected to pressure. The timbre 
is pure and individual and 
excellently suited to the dra- 
. matic coioraiua repertory. 
Miss Drivala sang in I talian , 
turning Mary into Maria, but 
foe audience minded no more 
than they did when Jerusalem 
provided a German Parsifal at 
short notice the other day. 

Her success inevitably over- 
shadowed the first Elizabeth 
by Jane Eaglen, one of foe 
most promising of foe ENO’s 
young sopranos who has plen- 
ty of work in next season’s 
offerings. The voice still has 
its raw edges and squally 
notes, but it is full of energy 
and attack. Miss Eaglen h3s 
lost a stone or two recently 
and it has taken no toil of her 
vocal resources. 

Arthur Davies, who has had 
a splendid season with foe 
company, takes on Leicester 
for foe first time. His tenor is 
in glowing good health, 
moulded easily to foe Doni- 
zetti style. The only surprise is 
that he has sqircely tackled 
this composer since his early 
days with the WNO. The 
Talbot of Patrick Wheatley is 
underpowered and under- 
characterized. a weak point in 
a revival otherwise full of 
vocal distinction. 

Peter Robinson and foe 
orchestra took a little time to 
find their Donizetti feet, reluc- 
tant to relax and feel the true 
rhythms. They were best in

Meanwhile, in another part 
of foe desert, foe destiny

takes the ample form of a 
Turkish General (Roland Cur- 
ran). Delicately- caressing his

artful enemy has guessed 
Lawrence’s fundamental 
weakness. And so it proves. 
Captured, bomosexuaily 
raped and released, Lawrence 
walks stiffly for the remainder 
of the play and is a changed 
man. 

The Arabian scenes are 
enclosed within scenes at the 
RAF Depot, Uxbridge, whith- 
er Lawrence, now AC2 Ross,

agaim ~ 

This. is the theme and 
turning-point of Rattigan's 
tongjunning play of tire early 
60s, now revived and brought 
to London from the Theatre 
Royal, Plymouth. Rattigan 
projects him as a prickly, 
oddball sort of chap, gets on 
well with Johnnie Arab, disre- 
spectful of authority, touch of 
' genius, though, no doubt 
about it All this is detailed in 
careful scenes that economi- 
cally give US background facts, 
punctuated with moments of 
light relief, like sweeties given 
to hold our attention. 


falsifying spell over even these 
is Rattigan’s desire to lead 
conversation up to succinct 
summaries of situation and 
character. The talk is studied 
with portentous remarks that 
come lobbing off foe stage and 
fall flat in foe stalls. Each 
scene ends with an indication 
of where foe next is set, like a 
helpfully, written radio play, of 
the land once churned out by 
L Du Garde Peach for 
Children's Hour. (Roger 
Redfam's direction develops 
fois notion with brisk march- 
ing tune prefacing a return to 
foe British lines.) It is so 
fearfully old-fashioned. 

But this would not matter a 
scrap if this stagey old can- 
horse conveyed something of 
foe excitement of Lawrence’s 
achievement, foe marvel of it, 
or a feel for foe politics 
inspiring and undermining the 
Arab revolt Rattigan’s Arabs 
are conceived in cliche, and 
understandably foe actors 
have trouble with them. 

The rest of the cast perform 
with success, considering the 
script they have to handle. 
Simon Ward gives us firm- 
ness, dignity, and dry humour 
as and when required. He 
even begins to be moving near 
the end but foe author man- 
ages to undermine him with a 
theatrical coincidence. David 
Langton’s wise Allenby is the 
good father balancing Roland 
Curran's bad one. By putting 
so much of himself into the 
play Rattigan serves his hero 
shabbily.

j Behind Heaven 

Royal Exchange, 
Manchester 

Hie influence on fringe the- 
atre of the television comedy 
series The Young Ones has 
given rise to a minor genre of 
its own. Take a handful of 
averagely penurious young 
characters, plant them in. a 
shabby flat where the decor 
can take a bit of punishment, 
and let them transcend their 
boredom through jokey 
fantasy. 

. Jonathan Moore's new play, 
a long-winded and rather 
messy elaboration of the 
genre, needs a smaller stage 
than the Royal Exchange on 
which to set the basement flat 
of foe action; and, as though in 
compensation, the author has 
bulked _ out lu's script with 
grand ideas which consort 
uneasily with foe flippess of 
much of his dialogue. 

The plot is nouwou-Oiton; 
a pair of dope-smoking Social 
Security claimants on the 


fringe of the music business 
(Mr Moore himself and Shar- 
on Cheyne) find themselves 
whiling away a Saturday night 
with a chippy satire on the 
good life. Enter, in a wheel- 
chair, a personification of all 
they loathe: their plutocrat 
landlord (James Maxwell) at- 
tended by his pyschopathic 
“assistant” (Jonathan Strati) 
who have come to discuss a 
little matter of nine weeks* 
rent outstanding. 

. The former speaks in tones 
of puple magniloquence, the 
latter m tabloid headlines. In 
feci the entire script consists 
of two basic voices — one high- 
flown, foe other demotic — 
and it is unfortunate that foe 
author has neither foe techni- 
cal skin to. produce genuine 
comedy from their disparity 
nor foe understanding of con- 
struction that might have 
allowed him to develop foe 
social critique which seems to 


(Robert Gwilym) whom foe 
young musician brains with a 
bottle, thus precipitating a 
radical personality change in 
which he dons a frock • 

When landlord and 
“assistant” return for the pur- 
pose of torturing the recalci- 
trant tenants (with, among 
other implements, a rice flail 
and a Mantovani record), the 
pysebopath falls for foe 
befrocked policeman and, on 
realizing his mistake, bottles 
him over foe head. Instantly 
reverting to type, foe agent of 
social repression remembers 
his original mission to ex- 
hume a wheelbarrowfiil of 
heroin from the garden and 
leaves foe landlord to thrash 
out his ideological differences 
with foe tenants. 

Shorn of its overtly moraliz- 
ing tendencies and its irritat- 
ing reliance on bathos,

Thatcher’s 
son goes 
back for 
furniture 

From Michael Bfnyon 
Washington 

Mr Mark Thatcher; the 
Prime Minister's son, was 
yesterday moving his furni- 
ture from the Dallas flat be left 
a month ago after fellow 
residents claimed his presence 
there posed them a security 
risk. 

He has moved to an undis- , 
closed location in the city, ' 
where he is being protected by 
the US diplomatic protection 
service. 

Mr Thatcher had no state- 
ment to make yesterday. 

In the wake of the US raid 
on Libya in April, the manage* 
-ment of the Dallas apartment 
block . was . asked to install 
extra security and surveillance 
cameras in case terrorist 
threats were made against 
him. It refiised to do so and 
instead asked him to leave op 
the grounds that other resi- 
dents were worried by his 
presence. 

The management action 
was vigourously criticized, es- 
pecially by Mr John Power, a 
former Texas senator, who 
called it discourteous and 
cowardly. Mr Thatcher was 
then permitted to stay until 
his lease ran out at the end of 
May. However, he moved to 
his new address a month ago 
to end the controversy. . 

The expense of his protec- 
tionis borne by the US Bureau 
of Diplomatic Security, which 
has standing authorization to 
protect family members of 
foreign heads of slate or 
gove rnments.

Fro m Nlichae 1 Hamlyn 
. . Amritsar 

A nsnterons game of see- 
saw was being played inside 
the Golden Temple of Amrit- 
sar yesterday for control of the 

hottest shrine of the Sikh 

rdigMHi. 

The extremists were in com- 
mand on Wednesday, and 
weid on the rampage through- 
out the rooms and resthooses 
of the complex, looking for 
remains of the police presence 
tfiicfc had been withdrawn, the 
day before. 

Bet the police were back In 
force yesterday. About ISO of 
them — afl Sikhs, sad all in 
civilian dress — were lounging 
around the sacred marble 
walkway, Che Parikrama, 
which borders the holy pond. 
Extremists plan to return to- 
day, and it looks as though the 
police wfll again be withdrawn. - 

Meanwhile, outside the tem- 
ple, a hunt is on for Mrs Simla 
Khalsa. widow of Inspector 
Beam Singh, an officer In the 
Prime Minister's bodyguard 
who 19 months ago emptied 
his revolver into Mis Indnra 

Gandhi before bring cut down 
by the rest of her police gaard. 

The inspector has since 
become a folk hero to the Sikh 
extremists, and his photo- 
graph is often honoured along- 
side that of his fellow assassin. 
Police Constable Satwant 
Singh. The inspector's widow 
has likewise become a celebri- 
ty and something of a political 
figure on the extremist fringe - 
of the Akati party. 

- When police Rad her 'she 
will be charged with riot, 
murder and attempted murder, 
according to the senior super- 
intendent of police in Amrit- 
sar, Mr S S Virk. She ted a 
mob of screaming fortes 
around the temple complex 
accompanied by a gang of 
young militants yelling slo- 
gans in favour of die indepen- 
dent Sikh state of Khalislan, 
and in a confrontation with 
temple guards one security 
man was stabbed to death. 

Standing in the middle of 
the seesaw for control is the 
battered organization which is 
still technically in charge ’— 
tire Supreme Temple Manage- 
ment Committee. 

' The police are officially ndt 
supposed to enter tire temple 
premises except by invitation 
of tire Committee, and the

The differences unresolved. 
It is dear from the 40-page 
document, were between those 
like tire Bishop of Durham 
who take tire “empty tomb" 

and the Virginal Conception to 
be references to spiritual 
truths, namely the Incarnation 
and the Resurrection, and 
those who believe that they 
describe what actually 

happened. 

The Archbishop of Canter- 
bury, Dr Robert Runde, at a 
press conference said: “We 
have chosen a form of words 
which leaves no doubt abou t 

tire corporate and official com- 
mitment of our church to tire

Virginal Conception bat can-

Asked whether their state- 
ment meant that the Church of 
K n gb m d could still consecrate 
bishops who held this latter 
view be said it depended how 
they chose to express them- 
selves. This was as near as he 
has yet come to questioning 
tire appointment of the Bishop 
of Durham, for in other con- 
texts he has strongly criticized 
bishops who introduced new 
ideas insensitively.

■ Not long ago the sort of cold, ! 
wet spring and .early summer i 
that we have experienced this 1 
-year' would' have meant wide- 
spread shortages in the shops. 
Nowadays, thanks to sweeping 
improvements in growing tech- 
niques, storage and transporta- 
tion and the ready availability of 
imported supplies, the effects j 
are barely noticed. I 

Salad ingredients, for exam - 1 
1 pie, include excellent hothouse . 
tomatoes from 50p a pound, 

■ cucumbers 30-50p each, water- 
l cress 25-35p a bunch. English 
new potatoes, although a week | 
or two fate, are beginning to 1 
reach the shops at around 30- 
35p a pound. The asparagus ! 
season is now in full swing, with 
prices ranging from £l-£2 a 
pound. 

Home-grown soft fruit has 
however, been delayed by up to 
a month, and viators to Ascot 
and Wimbledon may have to 
make do with imported straw- 
berries. Shop prices range from , 
60-I20p a pound. 

Fish supplies are generally 
good, with plenty of cod and 
haddock fillets, buss (otherwise 
known as rock salmon), large 
John Doxy and tuna all 
recommended. 

This week's best meat buys 
include Safeway boneless roast- 
ing pork down to £1.38 a pound 
and grilling steaks £1.54: Asda 
rolled pork shoulder 89p a 
pound and spare rib chops 99p; 
Tesco rump steaks £2.74 and 
lamb chops £2.58 a pound; 
Saiusbury’s shoulder of new 
season English lamb 98p a 
pound;

Borland International, the 
computer software company 
which aims to be the largest in 
the world in five years, is 
joining the Unlisted Securities 
Market this month via an 
offer for sale by J Henry 
Schroder Wagg. The company 
is expected to be vahied'at£65 
million. 

Based in California, ft is 
pressing ahead with its Lon- 
don flotation even though the 
issue of shares in Mrs Fields, 
an American cookie company, 
flopped - badly last month. 
Schroder and Goldman 
Sachs advised Mrs Fields. 

Mr Philippe Kahn, presi-

nrrai 


likely 

to miss 5% official target 


Industry’s investment in- 
tentions are tunning below the 
Treasury’s official forecast, 
according to figures published 
yesterday. This comes at a 
time when there are wide- 
spread doubts about .the 
Chancellors belief that the 
economy will grow by 3 per 
cent this year. 

' The Department' of Trade 
and Industry’s twice-yeariy 
investment intentions survey, 
published yesterday, predicts 
a rise of just over 3 per cent in 
business in vestment this year, 
followed by a similar increase 
ti>4987. 

_ This compares with the 
Treasury’s BudgeMime fore- 
cast of a S per increase in 
investment, this year, on .a 
wider definition of industrial 
-investment, partly based on 
the optimism of . Confedera- 
tion of British Industry mem- 
bers on in vestment prospects. 

The latest Department of 
Trade and Industry survey 
projects a rise of 63 per oent in 
direct investment by manu- 
facturing industry this year, 
but a decline of 14.8 per cent 
in assets leased to manufactur- 
ers by financial institutions. . 

Overall, man ti& c tu ring in- 
vestment is expected to in- 


By David Smith, Economics Corresponded 


crease by 18 percent this year, 
within an overall investment 
rise of 3 J per cent. 

Total manufacturing invest- 
ment, at a projected £6.98 
billion, in 1980 prices, this 
year will be some 15 per cent 
below its ,1979 peak of £8-23 
billion. But non-manufectur- 
ing investment, mainly the 
service industries, is expected 
to hit a new record of £13.86 
bflfion. up by 3.8 per cent on 
the 1985 level of £13.859 
billion. 


The 3.5 per cent rise in 
overall investment this year 
will be sufficient to push the 
total for business investment, 
in 1980 prices, to a new high of 
£20.84 billion. 

Preliminary results for 1987 
suggest that investment will 
increase at a similar pace, a 
marked slowdown on the 
sharp rise in investment re- 
corded as recently as 1984. 
Total business investment in- 
creased by 14.4 per cent in 
1984, as companies took ad- 


Surplus 6 down £300m’ 


Britain, had a current ac- 
count s ur pl u s of £528 million 
in the first quarter, nearly 
£300 juflHoa down on pnm- 
sfonal estimates. The surplus 
on inrisfbie trade first estimat- 
ed at S2J2 bflSioia, was revised 
down, to £1213 bSiioa. 

The first-quarter surplus of 
£528 mflK na compares with 
the £33 billion official fore- 
cast for the current account 
surplus for the year as a whole. 
This was despite the indnsion 
fa the first-quarto- figures of a 
£439 millfftw abatement on 
Britain’s contribution to tire 
1984 EEC budget 


This, together with abate- 
ments totalling £218 mtDioa 
on the 1985 Budget has the 
effect of mteringtbe deficit on 
trasfcrs Croat £873 miflioa iu 
the fourth quarter of last year 
to £205 m illion in the first 
quarter of this year. 

The on interest, 

profits and dividends was £832 
million, compared with £ 1.10 
billion in the first quarter of 
last year.. 

The surplus on services, 
in dotting shipping, aviation, 
tourism and the earnings of 
tire City, was £125 bfitiou fa 
the first (porter. 


vantage of capital allowances 
before they began to be phased 
out. 

The rate of increase slowed 
to a still buoyant 8 per cent 
Iasi year. Manufacturing in- 
vestment rose by 14.7 percent 
in 1984 and 6.5 per cent last 
year. 

The Confederation of Brit- 
ish Industry, in its latest 
Economic Situation Report, 
published earlier this week, 
predicted a 2.6 per cent in- 
crease in manufacturing in- 
vestment this year, similar to 
the Department of Trade and 
Industry’s projection. 

However, the CBI is expect- 
ing a huge increase, of about 
14 per cent, in investment by 
the service industries this yeas 
and this appears to account for 
a large part of the relative 
pessimism of the Department 
of Trade and Industry’s 
survey. 

Even so, the survey shows 
an improvement compared 
with six months ago. Then, 
the expectation was for an 
overall rise in investment of 1 
per cent and a 2 per cent drop 
m manufacturing investment, 
this year. The unproved pic- 
ture is doe to lower oil prices 
and the fall in interest rates.

The remarkable perfor- 
mance of Nissan UK, sole 
importers and distributors fa 
this country at Nissan cars, is 
a^tin reflected fa a hfah and 
stable level of profits. The 
latest accounts show that fa 
the- year aided July 31, 1985, 
the company .made an operat- 
ing profit of £47,043,006 on a 
turnover of £496 million. The 
comparable figures for the 
previous year were 
£24^36,000 and £440 mfifion. 
Profit before tax, largely as a 
result of lower investment 
income and a. steep, rise fa 
interest payable, wait up by 
bnfy£L86Q,0OO to £50,986,000 
. which is around tire average 
Nissan UK has achieved m 
recent years.' Tax is up from 
£14360,000 to £21442.000, 
leaving the profit after tax 
£3,522,000 down at 
£29,844,000. Dividends, foe 
part of which is paid to

imporved -environment, for 
selling second band vehicles. 
Chosen dealers of ’foehigbest

company. 

Accenting to Mr. Botnar, 
the dealer development pro- 
gramme “makes possible the 
sale of cars through!) a mjch 
sounder and more entrepre- 
neurial network. Manufactur- 
ers should not need to offer 
large subsidies to dealers to 
enable them to sefl ears.” 

Nissan UK’s drive to extend 
and renew its dealer network is 

related to the prospect of large

but the expectation, sou high 
though diminished, is that me 
Japanese will faring forward to 
this summer then- decision 
promised for next year on 
phase two: foe manufacture of 
100,000 cars a year at Wash- 
ington -- a entrial development 
for an area of high memploy- 
ment and for UK component 
makers, but also for Nissan 
Motor. 

The Japanese manufactur- 
ers are aider considerable 
pressure in their home market, 
where they are losing market 
share and faced with declining 
profits. At the samd time their 
American operations, hitherto 
highly profitable, are suffering 
under the lash of foe strong 
Yen. The attraction of a high 
volume plant in the UK as a 
base exporting to European 


Community countries, where 
duties and transport costs at 
present impose a 16 per cent 
penalty on cars exported from 
Japan is powerful. The attrac- 
tion of the highly profitable 
Nissan UK distributorship is 
■equally powerful 

The key qoestions are first * 
can Nbsui Motor , fa its 
present straightened financial 
or p B Ma»nr« afford to boy 
Nissan UK, whose worth 
probably lies somewhere be- 
tween a net asset value of £140 
atSfiou and at least twice that 
figure?” The 1985-86 figures 
for Nissan UK will almost : 
certainly show an impressive 
improvement on the excefieng j 
1984-85 figmes. 

The second vital question is 
“can Nissan Motor with its 
lack of retailing experience 
and its costly bnreacratic ways 
possible nm the UK distribu- 
tion operation fa the s a me 




way fa which It is now run 7” 
Mr. Botnar is pezsonaly 
detSdicated to the establish- 
ment of Nissan manufacturing 
fa Britain: his dealer develop- 
ment programme which is 
geared to seSfing 135,000 
cars, compared with the 
agreed figure of 105,000 with- 
in the vofasitary Japanese 
import quota, is evidence of 
thaL But he will not part with 
the company he has created 
unless he is certain that its 
c ompeti tive strengths and in- 
tegrity wifi be maintained. 
How formidable -Nissan UK 
has become is apparent from 
the-suddeat spate of attacks 
made on the company, its emus 
and its methods from envious 
rivals in the motor business.

Competition policy should be the 
natural diet of Thatcher ministers. 
They have, in turn, found it singularly 
hard 10 digest. The latest in her line of 
Secretaries of State for Trade and 
Industry, Mr Paul Channon, is not 
prepared to risk its impact on his 
stomach lining before it has been 
through that food processor known as 
a government review. 

Mr Channon’s statement yesterday, 
announcing the setting up of this 
review, was bland to the point of 
detachment. Both “law and policy” 
relating to mergers and restrictive 
trade practices are to come under 
review. The reasons? Mergers policy 
has “attracted attention” recently, 
while restrictive trade practices leg- 
islation has been in operation for 30 
years, and “has been criticized on a 
number of grounds”. 

Mr C hanno n wants wide public 
debate, and expert evidence. Fine. But 
those providing input to this review 
are entitled to expect from the 
responsible cabinet minister some-, 
thing more in the way of a statement 
of principle, on which tp hang their . 
objections or support. It is not, for 
example, clear whether Mr Channon 
believes that the policy issues axe 
confined to competition pure and 
simple, or should involve wider 
economic considerations. With only 
two years to go, at most, until the end 
of this Parliament, the Government 
cannot afford to waste time. 

If the review is to take place in a pol- 
icy vacuum, its conclusions will then 
have to be offered up for consultation 
before they can even seek a place in 
the legislation queue. Mr Channon 
has asked for initial views by the end 
of July; it would be fair to ask for an 


the international flavour of the group. 
Yesterday's results show that for the 
first time the non-banking activities 
contributed over 40 per cent to group 
operating profits. This helped to 
produce a healthy 22 per cent return 
on capital and reserves. 

Thar is an impressive contribution 
for what is still essentially a merchant 
banking group, although it is worth 
observing that Hill Samuel chooses to 
seperate out some “non-banking” 
activities, such as Investment 
management, when many of its 
competrtiors simply include them in 
the total result. 

A little less impressive than the 
previous year was the merchant 
banking result. Here, profits rose by 
£3.5 million to £26.S million com- 
pared with an increase of well over £4 
million in the previous year. At least 
part of the reason is that the glittering 
prizes in corporate finance, which 
have moved so profitable for some 
banks recently, seem to have eluded 
Hill Samuel this time. Elders’s bid for 
Allied Lyons was referred, so for 
depriving Hill Samuel of millions of 
pounds m fee income as advisers to 
Elders. In addition, the British Air- 
ways flotation in 'which Hill Samuel 
will eventually play a big pail has been 
delayed time and again. 

There is inevitably an element of 
pure bad luck in this, though attention 
within the group may also have been 
distracted by preparations for big bang 
in which Hill Samuel — under the 
dynamic leadership of Christopher 
Castleman, its chief executive — is 
now deeply involved. Hill Samuel 
foils between houses such as Lazarcjs 
and Barings who have decided to stay 




Sir Terence Conran: merger 
logic “obrious” 

Storehouse 
up 19% 
for year 

Sir Terence Conran yester- 
day UDVeiled foe filSt fnianrial 
results of Storehouse, the 
group created in January from 
the merger of Habitat 
Mothercare and British Home 
Stores. 

Pretax profits fra- the year to. 
March 29 were 19 per cent 
higher at £116.1 million on 
sales 6 per cent ahead at £1 
billion. Trading profits were 
up by 12 percent 

Sir Terence, chairman of 
Storehouse, said foe logic and 
opportunities of foe merger 
were even more obvious now. 

When asked about his deal 
with Mr Raplh Hal pern, chair- 
man of foe Burton Group, to 
use 20 per cent of foe space in 
DebenhamSj Sir Terence said 
he had received a letter from 
Mr Halpero on Wednesday, 
which “moved some way 
towards what we expect”. 

It is expected that the final 
arrangement will involve 
some space in Debenhams 
becoming available to Sir 
Terence, but substantially less 
than 20 per cent

views within a similarly brief period. 
After all, most of those interested 
parties — up to and including the 
Director-General of Fair Trading — 
have already made their opinions 
known, sometimes with quite pungent 
clarity. Or is Mr Channon hoping that 
merger fever will abate in a year or so, 
and with it the need to take govern- 
ment action? 

Rewards of diversity 

Hill Samuel has a better record than 
.most when- it comes to comparing 
profit growth among merchant banks 
over the last Jour or five years. Since 
1982 after-tax profits -have moved 
forward in regular jump® from £16 
million to the £40:o million prelimi- 
nary result announced yesterday for 
the year to March 31 1986. Compared 
with 1985 group profits were up by 27 
per cent. 

For the last five years the group has 
followed a policy of building up other 
areas of business, including insurance 
broking, employee benefits, shipping 
services and investment management 
to act as a second string to traditional - 
merchant banking activities. Last year 
it spent £50 million on non-banking 
acquisitions, most notably on opera- 
tions in the United States to develop 


making manifestations, and the big 
financial roadshows like Mercury 
International, BZW and Klemwort 
Benson. Though not as big as the big 
boys. Hill Samuel wants to do all the 

Same thing s. 

The bank disclosed yesterday that it 
was spending some £60 million in big 
bang preparations. This includes such 
diverse items as the £20 million spent 
on buying Wood Mackenzie, the 
stockbroker, and the cost of installing 
dealing positions and coffee machines 
for' its market-making team: By tile 
standards of its bigger rivals, £60 
million is not a vast amount. But then, 
.Hill Samuel is notasbig asmany of its 
rivals. The disclosed net worth of the 
group dropped to £179 million after 
eliminating £32 million of goodwill 
and £44 million from acquisitions. 

‘ The rather limited resources avail- 
able to Hill Samuel are illustrated by 
the capitalization of its gilt-dealing 
operation due to come into service 
after October. It will receive backing 
of £10 million, well below what many 
competitors are putting up for their 
-own-gilt operations and exactly half 
what the discount house, Gerrard & 
National, announced last week that it 
was putting behind- its own gilt 
business. • —

In 1980 we launched 
a still perry called Country Manor. 

It has proved so popular that it already 
sells 10 million botdes a year. 

Sales have grown by an average of 72% 
a year for the last four years. 

Over Christmas alone they were up 82%. 

Last year Country Manor and Babycham 
helped Allied-Lyons achieve a record pre-tax 
profit growth of 23 % to £ 269.5 million. 

Country Manor is one of the biggest 
single success stories the off-trade business 
has witnessed throughout the 1980’s. 

For us, it seems, ,i 1 I. 
success comes in pears. AlllGCL~JLyOriS

BHS 

plan under counter 



Tbe market breathed a sigh of 
refief when it saw Store- 
house's final results and 
m arked the shares 8p -higher 
at -298p. After underpcr- 
forming the stores index by 
about 20 per cent since the 
merger in January, the time 
may. now be ripe for some 
outpeifonnance. . 

Unseasonal weather is still 
plaguing retailers, but May 
looked much brighter. 

The Jong-awaited 
Conranization of British 
Home Stores has still to be 
revealed. The combined 
Habiiat/BHS group hasbeeo 
quiet about its intentions, but 
is now promisinga mini-bang . 
in the autumn, probably' con- 
centrating on Jazzing up and 
marketing BF(S .. n 

BHS has been revamping' 
its product lines in many 
areas, but increased quality in 
men's suits, homeware and 
other lines has kept ahead of 
consumer perceptions. The 
introduction of one- of Sir 
Terence Conran's men, Mr 
John Stephens, who took 
charge of Mothercare's mer- 
chandise after that merged 
with Habitat, to bead a 
product team at BHS indi- 
cates perceptions may soon 
be changing. 

There is still work to be 
done on the product front — 
the news that BHS, like 
Woolworth, is throwing in 
the towel on food is an 
indication of such work. 
Abandoning food, which has 
been loss-making since the 
late 1970s, will free up, to 7 . 
per cent extra space in BHS 
stores for higher margin 
goods- The £18 million cost 
of abandoning food was tak- 
en below the tine, also like 
Wooties. 

Elsewhere in the group, 
Richard Shops’ extensive do- 
sure and refit programme led 
to taxable losses of £4.6 . 
million compared with £2.4 
million. This year, however, 
should see strong benefit, 
from the changes. ■ 

The City is expecting tax- 
able profits this year from 
Storehouse of around £125 
million, which gives'* pro- 
spective p/e ratio of 13&. . 


company's property business. 

Whitlock, which opened 10 

• new stores last year and 
acquired Motomart for $5.2 

• million (£3.9 million), report- 

• ed virtually unchanged prof- 
its of£&5 million, more than 
half the trading total. 

Tbe chairman said the 
underlying rate of growth m 
the second half was still 30 
per cent but that was dis- 
guised by exchange rate 
movements which cost 
£700,000, and hading lasses 
of £450,000 at MotomarL 
This year should see a fester 
underlying rate of growth, 

- reflecting a. huge increase in 
selling space over the past 
two years. 

At home a professional 
property valuation has re- 
duced the book value of the 
portfolio by £2.1 million to 
£50.2 million: That may sur- 
prise shareholders as the new 
valuation takes into account 
the "recent granting of 
ning permission at < 
bridge, whereas that made a 
year ago by an employee who 
is a qualified surveyor, did 
not— bm gave a higher figure. 

Tbe shortfall on the valua- 
tion did not affect the level of 
.rental income from the port- 
folio, which rose from £3.6 
million to £3.9 million and 
should continue to rise 
steadily for tbe next two or 
three years. ' 

The valuation does not 
detract from the attractions 
of combining pro p erty with 
an overseas trading arm. 
Shareholdersdeariy appreci- 
ate the stability of property 
(and of LOP’S coal distribu- 
tion business! given the vola- 
tility of Whitlock's con- 
tribution in sterling terms. 

After applying a standard 
25 per cent discount to -the 
property portfolio, ft ac- 
counts for 40 per cent of the 
company’s stock market val- 
ue, even though it contributes 
only 30per cent of the trading 


Given the uncertainty over 
half the group’s trading total, 
the shares at H7p are not 
cheap. 

Henderson 
Administration 

Henderson Administration 
yesterday revealed a spar- 
kling performance for the 
year to March 31. Pretax 
profit rose 37 per cent to 
£17.2 million, to give earn- 
ings per share of 99p, com- 
fortably ahead of the most 
optimistic expectations of 
90p. 

Funds under management 
jumped 69 percent from £2.5 
billion to £43 billion. Pan of 
this was, of course, due to the 
judicious selection of invest- 
ments in a rising stock 
market. 

But the group was also able 
to attract 41 pension fund 
clients, taking the total to 
115. 

Pretax profits were boosted 
by £4 millioa of interest on 
the company's cash pile of) 
more than £20 minion. De- 
spite its ability to pick win- 
ners on the Stock Exchange. 


the group has declined to 
invest this cash, preferring 


only 31 
profit 


LCP Holdings 


Shareholders in LCP HoJdi- 
lugs had grounds far disap- 
pointment yesterday* both 
with Whitlock, tbe American 
car parts retailer, and with the- 


. After a. sharp drop in 
interest charges, from £6.1 
million to £33 million, pre- 
tax profits rose from £7.46 
million to £9.11 . million. 
With tittle change likely in 
the interest charge this year 
tbe outcome depends largely 
on the doUar/sterting ex- 
change rate, - as tins deter- 
mines Whitlock's contri- 
bution. 1 - 


instead to keep it in short 
term deposits as a cushion 
. against adverse markets. 

Cash also gives the oppor- 
tunity to make, acquisitions, 
but it will only expand into 
complementary activities. 

In a business where foes 
bear a direct relationship to 
the value of funds under 
management, Henderson has 
benefited from the strength of | 
many of tbe world's markets 
in recent years. With 62 per 
cent of its funds invested 
domestically, ft would need 
to be flea of foot indeed to 
avoid entirely tbe effects of a 
bear market in the UK. 

However, its record both in 
stock selection and in attract- 
ing new business makes it the 
sector's quality stock. Tins is 
beginning to be reflected in 
the price, which has nearly 
doubled to £18 in the last six 
months, puting ft on a pro- 

r tive rating of around 16. 

market capitalization is 
4.3 per .cent of funds under, 
management 
The 1 for 1 capitalization 
issue is unlikely to do much 
for marketability, a 1 for 10 
would be more like ft, but the 
slimes remain one of the most 
attractive in the sector.

The purchasing power of „ 
tbe public sector is to be 
harnessed to promote good 
design in British -industry 
starting with toasters* meat 
sheers and bedside lights. 

The British Design Chal- 
lenge, teundied yesterday by 
the Crown Suppliers and tire 
Design Council, is aimed at 
encouraging British oompa^ 
dies to tender new designs for 
products which at tbe moment 
are losing out to foreign 
competition. 

The inducement will be a 
substantial order from the 
Crown Suppliers, the 
Government's central pur- 
chasing agency, which supplies 
public sector organizations 
with more than £250 million 
of goods annually- 

Two categories have initial-

tive — commercial catering 
equipment and office electn- 
cal equipment and fighting. 

Tbe eight selected products 
also include a food processor, 
food mixer, ;desk fen and 
office desk fight - 
Mr John Butcher, , minister 
with responsibility for design, 
said: “Ibeheve ft will have a 
dramatic efiea on the compet- 
itiveness of manufacturers." 

}f the pilot scheme is suc- 
cessful the challenge win be 
extended to a much wider 


tbe next few weeks Mr

Asset sales in 
new towns 
rise to £105m 

By Judith Huntley 
The Commission for the 
New Towns, set up to sell 
assets in new towns, sold 
£105.13 million of commer- 
cial property and land in the 
last year, almost double the 
previous figure. 

Sir Neil Shields, the chair- 
man, said asset sales had 
outstripped the Government’s 
£7? million target. 

They included tbe sale of 35. 
acres at Bracknell, Berkshire, 
in partnership with PosTel to 
Bnde Hall Developments for 
£22 million, and a 15-acre site 
at Hemel Hempstead, 
Hertfordshire, to BP Oil for 
new headquarters. 

Rental income also in- 
creased from £26 million in 
1984-5 to £35 mfllioo in tire 
past year.

STOCK MARKET REPORT 


US tries spoonful of Cadbury 


American investors have 
turned sweet on shares of 
Cadbury Schweppes, tbe con- 
fectionery and soft drinks 
group, and were content to 
cha«; the stores 4p higher at 
173p yesterday in hectic trad- 
ing on both sides of the 
Atlantic, - 

Dealers reported heavy 
turnover in the group’s Ameri- 
can Depositary Receipts over- 
night in New York and this 
spmed over when trading 
resumed in London. The New 
York broker Goldman Sachs 
is believed to be behind the 
sudden flurry of activity: ft has 
been recommending the 
shares as a strong buy. Tbe 
broker has been taking a dose 
look ai Cadbury's after its 
acquisition of Canada Dry 
and Sunldst for £156 million 
from RJR Nabisco this week 
and dearly liked what it saw. 

Dealers are now bracing 
themselves for an upgrading 
of the shares by analysts over 
the next few weeks as the lull 
impact of this acquisition 
becomes faflv known. 

Other food manufacturers 
»i«n featured heavily else- 
where in the market. Market 
speculators are already trying 
to guess bow Associated Brit- 
ish Foods will spend tire 
proceeds from the sale of its 
Hue Fare supermarket chain 
_to Dee Corp- A list of runners 
has already been drawn up, as 
The Times pointed 
outvestetday. 

The list is’wide and includes 
the likes ofUmted Biscuits, up 
9p at 246p, Kowutree Mackin- 
tosh, Up at 292p, Northern 
Foods, lOp at 292p, Tate & 
Lyle, 18p at 606p, and Ranks 
Hovis McDosgali, unchanged 
at 223p. AB roods was 2p 
lighter at 332p and at this 
stage its anybody's guess who 
it will bid for. 

Tbe rest of the equity 
market enjoyed selective sup- 
port in the thin conditions 
with investors still hoping for 


a Vi per cent cut in bank base 
rates to 9ft per cent shortly. 

However, the Government 
will probably wait until after 
the next set of Money Supply 
figures due out os Tuesday 
before giving the final go- 
ahead. 

The prospect of lower taxes 
also helped to stimulate dc- 

Anafysis may be haring sec- 
ond thoughts about Bunnah 
Ofl following the recent rights 
issue. Estimates for pretax 
profits of £81 million this year 
against £79.6 million in 1985 
appear to be on target, bat it 
now looks as though the tax 
charge may be ranch higher 
than expected. That means 
that die prospective earnings 
of 33.6p a share amid be on 
the high side. The shares were 
unchanged at 354p. 

maud and dealers said there 
was dear evidence of support 
from overseas investors anx- 
ious to buy the big exporters. 
Among these. Jaguar stood 
out with a rise 15p to Sl8p 
following the latest produc- 
tion figures from the US 
which made impressive 
reading. 

By tbe dose, the FT index of 
top 30 shares was 12.0 up at 
1J32.6 while the FT-SE 1 00 
rose !L2 to 1,612.6. 

On the bid front. Dixons 
advanced 4p to 356p, still 
waiting to bear from the Office 
of Fair Trading into its £1,700 


By Michael Clark 

million bid for Woolworth, 
unchanged at 85Sp. Dealers 
remain convinced that Dixons 
win have to increase its offer 
to around £10 a share if it 
wants to stand any chance of 
winning. Tbe second dosing 
date for the bid is today. 

Tbe insurance composites 
rallied from recent weakness 
stemming from a possible 
reduction in insurance premi- 
ums in Florida. Commercial 
Union finned 3p to 307p, with 
General Accident, i Op lo 809p, 
Guardian Royal, a similar 
figure at S42p, and Royal 
Insurance top at 867p. 

Corby-based Hunterprint, 
the specialist colour printer, 
continued to draw strength 
from this week's interim fig- 
ures showing pretax profits 39 
per cent up at £1.7 million. 

The group is making the 
most of the Government’s 
privatization policy and has 
already won contracts to sup- 
ply colour publicity fliers for 
the British Gas and Trustee 
Savings Bank flotations. 
Hopes are high the group 
might also be awarded the 
contract for British Airways* 
public debut. 

Mr Angus Macdonald, of 
lbestockbroker Laing & 
Cruickshank, likes the shares 
and is looking for pretax 
profits of £3.2 million for the 
lull year and earnings a share 
of 27.5p. The price closed 5p 
dearer at 250p, after 253p — a 
rise on the week, so far. of 35p.

managers to the company next 
week. Bid speculation was also 
good fora I9priseto I72pm

the market were suggesting 
that the group has received a 
bid of 200^-5 hare from 
Smiths Industries. Thai would 
capitalize The entire group at 
neariy £200 million. 

Further consideration of tbe 
results and share slimming 
proposals lifted Reed Interna-

and investment in Europe 
must be removed 


The European Community plays an 
important part in the business strategy of this 
company. Group profits earned within Europe, 
including the UK. have risen to £390m in the 
last 10 years. There are strong opportunities for 
business expansion and profit in Europe but we 
could do even better if the trading environment 
was less restrictive. 

It is vital, in the interests of everybody who 
lives and earns his living in this part of the world, 
■ that we tear down the antiquated barriers to 
trade and investment inside the European 
Community and establish the single internal 
market which was always part of the long-term 
goal. 

One internal market in Europe will mean 
that we can sell our goods and services as easily 
to France or Portugal as we can to Manchester 
or Edinburgh. It will remove delays at frontier 
posts and reduce the £7 billion of unnecessary 
administrative costs incurred by European 
businesses each year. 

One market in Europe means that businesses 
can grow to a sufficient size to compete with 
international competitors, and it will unleash 
the tremendous skills, innovation and capital 
that can make our businesses world leaders. 

In financial services, an area of particular 
interest to this Group, there are signs that some 


of the barriers preventing trade between 
member states will be reduced. Later this year 
the European Court will make its judgement 
about restrictions on insurance. This could 
lead the way to a much freer market, with 
opportunities for new business and new jobs. 

Throughout Europe there is a greater 
awareness of the need for competitive and 
profitable business and the kind of environment 
which will encourage that. Lord Cockfield, Vice- 
President of the European Commission, has 
produced a timetable for the completion of the 
internal market. Prime Ministers of Europe have 
agreed amendments to the Treaty of Rome which 
commit them to complete the internal market 
by 1992 and improve decision making. 

Of course, a major endeavour such as this 
is bound to encounter difficulties, but the stakes 
are so high that we must find a way round them. 
At the moment the will is there, but it needs to 
be translated into action. 

If Europe is to face up to her competitive 
challenges and successfully tackle the blight of 
unemployment then Governments, businesses 
and citizens must learn to co-operate and work 
together for the future. For it is only by real and 
practical co-operation that Europe can remain 
a major economic and political force in the 
world today.

THE TIMES FRIDAY JUNE 6 1986 





BUSINESS 


The small get in on the act 


Once a month nine businessmen from 
around Britain gather for half a day in 
London to give the Government their 
vie»s on its proposed new legislation, - 

The advisory panel was created earlier 
this year as pan of the battle against 
unnecessary red tape and gives small 
business its most direct imput so far into 
the legislative machinery. 

The unpaid members, who were 
chosen for their wide-ranging small 
business experience, are asked to com- 
ment on the impact of new laws and to 
suggest areas where excessive bureaucra- 
cy is of concern for small business. They 
are particularly worried now about the 


Managers 
who make 
success out 
of failure 

Managers like to say that it is manage- 
ment which makes the difference be- 
tween a successful company and a 
failure. At Melville Technology this 
theory is being put to the test 
The group was formed a year ago by 
John Poole and two fellow directors of 
Mowlem -Technology, owned by John 
Mowlem the builders, who were disap- 
peimed^hat-their -subsidiary- was- to -go ' 
public in the US-rather than in London. 
Afterbuilding up a'business for someone 
else, they decided to do it again for. * 
themselves.' . - • ^ 

The plan was to buy- a poorly run - 
company. set to work with their com- 
bined management skflls/arid. to then 
raise further capital for expansion, 
particularly in the United States. 

It took five months to identify a 
suitable vehicle but in May last year 
MelvHle Technology was formed to buy 
three companies that had originally been 
part of the Alfred Herbert machine tool 
group which went into receivership in 
the late 1970s. 

The businesses, subsequently bought 
by their management, were in a similar 
area to' Mowlem" Technology — quality 
control — but were not in direct-, 
com petition. Th eir main actiyily.was the, . 
manufacture of measurement and in- 
spection devices, as used during^ the __ 
prodhctlDlFTJf'asD-eiigine Blades, arid 
which incorporate highly sophisticated 
signal detection and processing systems. 

Colin McCrosson, the managing direc- 
tor, who is a running a company “hands- 
on” again for the first time in 1 5 years, 
says Melville Technology had lost its 
way. He went into the business full time, 
imposed a new organizational structure 
-and cleared nut almost all the top 
management 

_ -“WefoundAherewereeatceUent people — 
below that level who were frustrated and 
inhibited.” he said 


impact of product liability legislation 
and on the amount of bureaucracy 
emanating from Brussels. 

The businessmen - there are no 
women participants at the moment — 
come from companies which vary in size 
from below 20 to 400 employees and also 
include an accountant and a small 
business advisor. One member flies in 
from Belfast every month. 

They meet representatives of the 
Enterprise and Deregulation Unit at the 
Department of Employment and are 
asked after signing the Official Secrets 
Act, to comment on Government plans. 

One of the members, Phillip White. 


chief executive at Wyco, the West 
Midlands power transmission engineers, 
said: “I think it is a valuable thing to do 
because frequently we have seen legisla- 
tion arrive on the statute books without . 
people in industry making their views 
dear before it is too late. 

“Certainly we are there to take a 
constructively critical view of things.” 

On issues that are not sensitive, the 
businessmen are encouraged to get 
feedback from colleagues and competi- 
tors from within their industries. Paul 
Twyman. head of the deregulation unit, 
said: “They are putting considerable 
effort in and we take notice of what they 
say.” 




&ti£33siki*&k‘. ilM 




The Melville founders: (1 to r) Fred Worth, John Poole and Colin McCrosson 


He limited the company’s foreign 
exchange -exposure, set simple output 
targets,, liquidated surplus stocks arid 
imposed a much - tighter control of 
debtors and creditors.' 

To k«p the staff informed the 
company; held brainstorming sessions 
for everyone down to foreman level and 
devoted more time to management 
training. Investment in product develop- 
ment was increased to £250,000 a year. 

Trading profits almost doubled to 


BRIEF7ING : 


■ Many small and medium-sized 
businesses are in danger of losing 
because they cannot afford the high 
costs of patent Stigatkxi, says Robin 
Lawrence, president of the Chartered 
Institute of Patent Agents. The process . .. 
has become so complex and 
expensive that many small firms never try 
to enforce their rights serjouslyx he_ _ 
tblda London conference on Intellectual 
property last week. 

■ Small firms have utofl June 1 6 to 
enter the 1986 small business efficiency 
awards with prizes worth more than 
£70.000. Any British company with up to 
25 employees which has been in 
business for at least two years can apply. 
A series of area beats - with prizes of 
£500 - wffl be held tf qualify for the 
national awards. The top national 

prize is-£40fflK>en<f22j50 0 of equi pm ent 
The competition is sponsored by 
British Telecom . 


£661,000 in the year since the takeover 
but the high level of borrowings which 
- the company incurred to buy the original 
busin^ses - means that! expansion is 
impossible until new money is raised. . 
_ The intention Jfowis to ask the Stock 
Exchange to waive its normal require- 
ment of three years- trading and to 
obtain a quotation on the Unlisted 
Securities Market next. year. Mr Poole 
talks of a £20 million market capitaliza- 
tion and of doubling in size through 
buying another company.

From M G G PQIai, 8n»h H u n pu r 

. Kuala Lumpur Tin after the buffer stock manager gic KLTM and pressure to 
Market (KLTM), which is ran out of money trying to make it official grew, 
fighting for international rec- support the price. Singapore, however, is re- 

.oguition after the collapse, of Indonesia and Thailand luezani . to offend Malaysia. 


.Mil ’-M it ■ woo f*J p JV K : 


the . threat of a rival market in ■ 
Singapore after upsetting In- 
donesia and Thailand with a 
Tule that trading onthe KLTM 
be confined to Malaysian tin 
priced in Malaysian ringgit. 

Traders now hope the re- 
striction will be lined. It was 
intended to give Koala Lum- 
pur the presage of an irnerna- 
tionally-acceptable quote for 
the metal, but instead had the 
effect of shutting out Jakarta 
and Bangkok. 

The Malaysian attempt to 
corner the tin market in 1981 
also upset the two neighbours. 
They say it was that action 
which hastened the sharp 
decline of the market for the 
metaL 

* The Internationa] Tin 
Council buffer slock operation 
was suspended late last year 


posals to alleviate the ITCs 
problems; since most of the tin 
in die buffer stockpiles was 
Malaysian. 

It is something that still 
hampers cooperation among 
the three countries. 

When the KLTM reopened 
for business this year despite 
the continued suspension of 
tin trading on the London 
Metal Exchange, the insis- 
tence on dealing only in 
Malaysian tin remained. 

- That forced Thai and Indo- 
nesian miners to sell their 
output in Singapore, where the 
traditional “grey market” for 
smuggled Thai, Malaysian 
and Indonesian tin was con- 
verted into a market for legal 
tin from Indonesia and Thai- 
land. Its turnover quickly 
outstripped that of the lethar- 




its market informal. But the 
tin continues to come in and 
the Singapore market will 
remain important for as long 
as the London market stays 
dosed, ' 

Kuala Lumpur is sufficient- 
ly worried to have established 
a task force to spruce up the 
image of the KLTM. 

The task force has already 
agreed to relax the rules for 
KLTM membership to allow 
companies who are sot regis- 
tered or resident in Malaysia 

One local tin dealer said the 
KLTM was worried about its 
viability. The task force, ac- 
cording to this dealer, has 
agreed to relax the rules. 
International tin dealers 
would be encouraged to come 
in. It would eventually allow 
non-Malaysian tin. - 


Cement price rise delayed 


- Faffing energy prices have 
delayed a 4 per cent increase 
in the pride of cement, due on 
July I. ‘ 

The Cement Makers' Feder- 
ation, which represents the big 
three producers. Blue Circle, 
Rugby Portland and Rio 
Tinto-Zmc, has postponed the 
increase while the companies 
renegotiate their »nw«i rr^ »t 
contracts with British CoaL 

The cement industry is one 
of British Coal's leading in- 
dustrial customers. Coal ac- 
counts for more than 40 per 


By David Young, Energy Correspondent 


cent of the cost of producing 
cement 

But failing oil prices have 
made the industry look again 
at the possibility of using oO to 
fire kilns, and this has forced 
British Coal to reduce its 
prices. 

Postponement of the price 
rise was welcomed by the 
Building Employers Confeder- 
ation. 

However, the builders are 
still trying to persuade the 
cement makers to chop a 
proposed increase in transport 


charges for small loads 
Cement prices last rose by 4 
per cent a year ago. That was 
the first rise for three years as 
the industry fought off the 
threat of cheap imports 
Imports account for only I 
per cent of the cement market 
and are mostly bagged sup- 
plies from East Germany. 
However, there is a danger of 
50,000 tonnes of Russian ce- 1 
meat coming on to the market 
and undercutting the present 
British price of about £40 a 
tonne by £S.

In 1980 average sales per 
US dealer fell to a disastrous

119 and rising. This year

HIS LORDSHIP said that 
section 6(2) of tbe Criminal Law 


slaughter should not be returned 
when the jury could not agree 
about murder. Nor could foeir 
Lordships see any reason why 


the opening words of subsection 
(2) should be. read as meaning, 
“on an indictment for murder a 
person (band not guilty of 
murder, but not otherwise, may 
be found guilty . of 
. manslaughter”. 

It had been suggested that in . 
cases in which there was a 
possibility on a count of murder 
of a jury returning a verdict of 
manslaughter, the indictment 
should contain two counts. 

That would be contrary to 
long established practice, would 
tend to confuse the jury and 
would not deal with the case, 
not uncommon, in which the 
possibility of a verdict of man- 
slaughter only became apparent 
during the course of the triaL

(ii) it was for the driver to give

that alternative specimen; 

(iii) the consent bad to be an 
unconditional consent; and 

(iv) tbe onus was on foe driver 
to establish that be had given an 
unwinriiHnnjil consent. 

If in foe present case all that 
had happened was that the 
defendant bad given an un- 
conditional consent to a Mood 
specimen bong taken, but foe 
doctor had declined to take the 
specimen despite foe consent, 
foe court would have no alter- 
native but to conclude that the 
procedure laid down by section 
8 of the 1972 Act, as substituted, 
bad not been carried out and the 
breath specimen would not be 
admissib le evidence of foe in- 
take of excess akohoL 

But ft was implicit from foe 
facts found foal the doctor was 
reasonably taking the view that 
the defendant was not giving an 
- unconditional consent. 

Tbe onus was on a driv er to 
establish that be was consenting 
to a Mood sample being taken 
and if he so behaved that be left 
the doctor reasonably believing 
that he was not consenting 
unconditionally, he could not 
complain if tbe doctor declined 
to take foe sample. 

That was exactly what had 
happened in the present case. 

_ The prosecutor was entitled to 
rely on the evidence provided 
by tbe lower court of the breath 
specimens notwithstanding that 
the defendant had consented to 
a Mood sample being taken, 
because having regard to the 
defendant’s behaviour foe doc- 
tor could reasonably take the 
view that no true consent bad in

Advocate Geiioal Sir Gordon 
Slynn- 

(Opinion April 17. 1986) 
[Judgment given June 3] 

A person was entitled to be 
treated as an EEC migrant 
worker even where he claimed 
financial assistance payable out 
of pobtic funds in order to 
supplement foe income derived 
from his employment. 

Mr Kcmpf a German na- 
tional, entered Tbe Netherlands 
m September 1981. He worked 
there as z pan-time music 
teacher, giving some 12 lessons 
per week, between October 26, 
1981 and July 14. 198Z 

During that period he also 
applied for and received supple- 
mentary benefit under The 
Netherlands law on unemploy- 
ment benefit. 

As a result of being unable to 
work through illness Mr Kempf 
subsequently obtained social se- 
curity payments under the 
Zirktewet [law on sickness 
insurance]. He also received 
benefits pursuant to the 

Algemenebostandswet [general 
assistance law]. 

On November 30, 1981 Mr 
Kempf applied to the chief of 
the local police for a Nether- 
lands residence permit. That 
application was rejected and be 
therefore appealed to foe 
Staatssecretaris van Justitie - 
[Secretary of State for Justice] 
who also rejected his application 
on tbe ground, inter aim, tint he 
was not “a favoured EEC 
citizen” within foe meaning of 
The Netherlands legislation on 
aliens, since, having applied for 
support to Netherlands public 
funds he was manifestly not in a 
position to support his needs 
with 'revenue drawn from his 
paid activity. 

Mr Kempf brought an action 
against foe secretary of state’s 
decision before the Ra&d van 
Staai (Judicial Division of foe . 
State Gonna)} which suspended ' 
its -proceedings and referred a 
question to foe Court of Justice 


of foe European Communities exceptions and derogations 
for a preliminary ruling. from the principle office move- 

c ssMssAsr 

The question asked by foe It followed that the rules on 
national coun sought, in sub- that subject were to be inter- 
stance, foe clarification of the preted so that a person who 
criteria established by the Court pursued an effective and gerra- 
in its judgment in Case 53/81, me activity as an employed 
Levin v Staatssecretaris van person on a part-time basis 
Justitie A 1982] ECR 1 035) wfth could not be excluded from foeir 
regard to tbe situation in which scope by reason only of the feet 
a national of one member state that that person sought to 
pursuing within tbe territory of augment foe income derived 
another member state an eftec- from that activity, which was 
live and genuine activity as an lower than the minimum means 


recently in foe Levin case, foe 
terms “worker*' and “activity as 


person on a part-time basis 
could not be excluded from foeir 
scope by reason only of foe feet 
that that person sought to 


another member state an effec- from that activity, which was 
live and genuine activity as an lower than tbe minimum means 
employed person sought to raise of subsistence, by other lawful 
his income from that activity to means of subsistence. 


the level of tbe minimum means 
of subsistence by means of 
financial assistance paid out of 
the public funds of tbe host 
member state. 

In accordance with well estab- 
lished case law of the Court, the 
free movement of workers was 
one of foe foundations of foe 
Community. Tbe provisions 
which embodied that fun- 
damental freedom and, in 
particular, the concepts of 
“workers” and “activity as an 
employed person” which de- 
fined their scope were therefore 
to be interpreted broadly, while 


In that regard ft was irrelevant 
whether foe subsidiary means of 
subsistence were derived from 
the property or the work of a 
member of foe family of foe 
person concerned, or whether 
they were derived, as in the 
present case, from financial 
assistance drawn on public 
funds in the host member state, 
provided that tbe effectiveness 
and genuineness of the activities 
as an employed person were 
established. 

Thai conclusion was more- 
over, reinforced by the feet that, 
as the Court had held most 


terms “worker’’ and "activity as 
an employed person” might not 
be denned by reference to the 
national laws of tbe member 
states hut had a Community 
meaning. 

That meaning might be com- 
promised if the eruoymem of 
rights conferred under tbe rules 
on freedom of movement for 
workers were excluded where 
the person concerned claimed 
payments made out of public 
funds which were made avail- 
able under the national legisla- 
tion of the host member state. 

On those grounds the Euro- 
pean Court ruled: 

Tbe feet that a national of one 
member state, who pursued 
within tbe territory of another 
member state, an activity as an 
employed person which might 
in itself he regarded as an 
effective and genuine activity, 
claimed foe benefit of financial 
assistance from the public funds 
of that member state in order to 
augment the income which be 
derived from his activity, did 
not enable him to be excluded 
from the application of the 
provisions of Community taw

•Another gamble 
goes astray 
as French land 




cup one-two 


By Michael Seely 


In a thrilling all-French 
finish to yesterday's Corona- 
tion Cop at Epsom, Fat 
Eddery on Saint Estep he beat 
Eric Legrix on Triptych by a 
short head Petoski, last year’s 
King George VI and Queen 
Elizabeth Diamond Stakes 
winner finished three lengths 
away in third place with 
Shardari, the heavily backed 
even-money favourite, a dose 
fourth. 

Saint Estephe was the first 
French-trained horse to cap- 
ture this famous group one 
race since ExceUer in 1977 and 
the first Gallic invader to 
succeed in England since Pal- 
ace Music won the Champion 
Stakes in October, 1984. 
There was a stewards’ inquiry 
afterwards as the winner had 
hung to the left in the dosing 
stages but the placings were 
allowed to stand 

in contrast to the Derby, the 
Coronation Cup was run at a 
strong even pace throughout 
and the winner’s time of 2 
minutes 34.87 seconds was Vh 
seconds fester than that re- 
corded by Shahrastani the day 
before. 

Boldden, PetoskTs pace- 
maker, dictated the early gal- 
lop, followed by the Guy 
Harwood- trained pair, St 
HOarion and Phardanle, and 
Shardari. Willie Carson soon 
had Petoski racing on the 
heels of this group. 

Running down the hill to 
Tattenham Corner. Walter 
Swinburn on Shardari set sail 
for home, but it was soon dear 
that the Michael Stoute- 
trained colt was not going well 
enough to shake off his 
challengers. 

Legrix looked all set for 
victory when sending Trip- 
tych into a dear lead two 
furlongs from home but then 
'Eddery conjured a magnifi- 
cent ran from Saint Estephe 
who, despite racing with his 


head in the air, proved just the 
stronger dose home. 

The head-on film showed 
that Shardari had veered away 
from the rails at the same time 
as Saint Estephe had hung to 
his left, thereby causing 
Petoski to become the meat in 
the sandwich. 

Considering that it was his 
first race for 11 months, 
Petoski ran a thoroughly satis- 
factory trial for his second 
attempt on the King George. 
“He must have been rusty” 
Shelagh Hern, the trainer’s 
wife, said. “Under the rircum- 
stances, he pat up a good 
performance.” 

Shardari, on the other hand, 
who had been the medium of a 
spectacular gamble, was a 
disappointing favourite. “The 
colt just didn't appear to 
handle, to track,” Swinburn 
said afterwards. 

Andre Fabre, Saint 
Estephe's trainer, has charge 
of 200 horses at Chantilly. “I 
think Tvegotthe Largest string 
in France apart from Francois 
Boutin," he said. “I started 
training in 1978 and have so 
far won two classics, the Poule 
d'Essai des Poulains with 
Siberian Express and last 
year’s Prix de Diane with 
Lypharita. 

The trainer, who rode over 
250 winners overjumps as an 
amateur, including the Grand 
Steeplechase de Paris, said 
that Saint Estephe had an 
entirely unmerited reputation 
for being ungenuine. “The colt 
certainly has some 
idiosyncracies,” he said. 

“He sometimes races with 
his head in the air and, on one 
occasion with Lester Piggott in 
the raddle, he stood stock still 
in the paddock at Longphamp 
and refused to move for five 
minutes. But as you saw 
today, he runs his races out 
with great courage." The Top 
Ville colt, who was bought for 



TODAY’S PROSPECTS 


Pennine Walk can 
takeDiomed 
Stakes in his stride 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 


Saint Estephe (left) leads a successful French invasion in the Coronation Cop with Triptych 
a close second, Petoski third and Shardari (top right) a disappointing fourth 


35,000 guineas as a foal will 
have his next race in the 
Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud on 
July 8. 

Michael Stoute reported 
that Shahrastani was in fine 
shape after his Derby win and 
that the cut he had sustained 
on his leg was entirely superfi- 
cial “Either the Irish Derby or 
the Eclipse Stakes will be his 
next target," the trainer added. 

The Eclipse also remains 
the objective of Dancing 
Brave, the fast finishing run- 
ner-up in the premier classic. 


“He's taken the race well,” 
Guy Harwood said “But un- 
fortunately Allez Milord had 
pulled a muscle in a tendon.” 

Eddery had earlier won the 
opening Headley Maiden 
Stakes on Cree’s Figurine for 
Martin Fetherston-Godley 
and went on to complete a 
treble by capturing the 
Nightingall Maiden Stakes on 
Sultan Mohamed for John 
Dunlop. 

The most impressive win- 
ner of the afternoon was First 
Division, who stormed home 


by four lengths in the Egmont 
Stakes in the hands of George 
Duffidd “He's one of eight 
horses that William Du Pont 
111 has in training with me." 
Gavin Pritchard-Gordon said 
“He's been improving all sea- 
son and will now go for the 
King George V Handicap at 
Royal Ascot,” 

Duffield went on to com- 
plete a double on Bruiser, 
trained by Mark Prescott, in 
the Ladbroke Credit Express 
Handicap. The winner landed 
a gamble from 12-1 to 7-1. 


PENNINE WALK, who won 
the Woodeote Stakes at Epsom 
as a two-year-old, can make * 
trium phant return to the difficult 
Surrey track today 
by taking tibe Duxsed Stoles. 

My selection looked In 
tremendous form at Kempton at 
the of last month 

when, on Jbis seasonal debut, be 
won the JnbOee Handicap cany- 
Ias9st lUb. 

Last season gen uin e Walk 
showed that be was capable of 
winning a group face when he 
Bfted trie Jersey Stakes at Royal 
Ascot. Later in the summer ho 
excelled again by giving Lucky 
Ring 131b and- a 2 %-length 
beating fat the. Addison Tools 
Handicap at Newmarket. • ; 

While it is fear to say- that 
Lucky Ring went from str en gth 

mag at Goodwood toad York 
before landing the Kfreton Fade 
Stakes at Doncaster, 1 stffl fed 
that Pennine Walk wfll be 
capable of giving him 31b this 
afternoon, especially as Lucky 
Kinghfied to cut a in tbe 
Leclcinge Stakes on his 
reappearance. 

Ob a line through Soprano, 
who finbhed third to Lucky 
Ring at Doncaster and second to 
Ever Genial in the Hunge rf ord 
Stakes at Newtwry, it is posable 
to argne that there sboald not be 
much between Lucky Sing and 
Ever Genial now. 

Ntoo Bibbia is a new favourite 
of mine but this r e pres en ts a 
very considerable step up in 
ddss after winning his maiden at 
Newmarket and a maidens-at- 
dostng at Sandown. 

Stately Form, a stable 
companion of Pennine Walk and 
also in the same . ownership, is 
expected to make a bold show in 
the Northern Dancer Handicap 
following that good ran at 
Chester where he was beaten 
only a neck by Pagan San. 

In this instan ce, though, I 
prefer POSITIVE, who had a 
redent race at Haydock Park 
sewn op even before his weight- 
cloth slipped out from trader his 
saddle towards the end, result- 

incin inevitable disqualification. 

The form of the Manx Derby 
win be pot to the test in the Snn 
Life of Canada Handicap when 
FAjRAG mas wUh 8st lib on his 
back. At Castletown, Peter 
Walwyn’s colt would probably - 
have won of finishing a 

-dose third if he had come round 


the last sharp bend as wefl ns the 
two who beat him. However, the 
experience should have done 
fatal the world of good and put 
hhs right for todays test. 

IMPERIAL JADE, who no 
nearly heat Osntimr here on 
Wednesday, makes a qnk* re- 
turn to die Epson downs for the 
Tokyo Trophy, ran over a 
furlong father. The way that 
she finished on Derby day 


will salt her. A. _ — 
ti «i ■ m u l i Bonin Em3y, who fin- 
ished third, gives tor the . edge 
over Lanrie Lumen, who just 
maww id tu tooch off Boffin 
. Emily at Good^rood last month. 

At Catterick,! envisage Wa- 
ge Ryan, who rode Faraway 
Dancer to sndh good effect in his 
first Derby, landtag a doable on 
RAJSINHELL (3-lS) and 
LOCH SEAFORTH (4-lSV 
When RaisinheU won at 
Goodwood, she beat Makife 
who is now ray selection fa the 
second division of Che 
MmybenL Stakes. 

Loch Seaforth is preferred to 
Jest David in the Scotch Comer 
Stakes but Alec Stewart and 
Michael Roberts, the tnaacr 
and Jockey associated with Just 
David, should gain_ compensa- 
tion at HaySock's evening meet- 
ing where MTOTO is napped to 
inn the Chfanobfle Maiden 
Stakes. 

This Busted colt, who so 
nearly won on Ids seasonal debut 
at Salisbury, has been going 
sufficiently we» at home since 
then that his aide yonng tanner 
is thinking to terms ofa crack at 
the KmgEdward VIZ Stakes at 
Royal Ascot later this month. 
Today’s race should be easy 
-prey. 

In 1982 Matt McCormack 
ran Horage in the John Lawler 
Stakes as part of hi? preparation 
fa -what tamed out to be a 
successful tilt at the Coventry 
Stakes at Royal Ascot Now he 
is hoping, with some ra stiBca- 
tion, that QUEL ESPRIT win 
follow in Horage’s footsteps. 

Finally, VAGUE SHOT is 
taken to win the B nr tt in r o od 
Brewery Handicap from the 
recent Pontefract winner. High- 
est Praise. Cou HoraauV mneh-

CRICKET: RECORDS TUMBLE DURING REM ARKABLE DEBUT AT DERBYSHIRE 


Kaiiifrom Jean-Jacques’ 
the isle of magical touch 

supermen By Peter Ball 


By Alan Gibson 

BRISTOL- Gloucestershire, with 
nine second-innings wickets in 
hand, are 100 runs. ahead of 
Warwickshire. 

On Wednesday Gloucester- 
shire had scored 352 and 
Warwickshire 32 for no wicket. 
Yesterday Warwickshire played 
a rather slow, though steady 
reply. The first wicket to fell was 
that of Smith, with the total 38. 
He was splendidly caught at 
extra cover, a diving catch. The 
second fell at 94 when Lloyd, 
having reached his 50, was 
bowled. The third went at 126 
when Amiss was caught at short 
leg. Bainbridge had raped with 
ail three wickets, firat as a 
catcher and then twice as a 
bowler. 

The rain came for an hour in 
the morning but the pitch was 
never difficult and KaUtcharran 
and Hum page prospered in the 
afternoon sunshine. 

Kallicfaarran, though now in his 
later 30s, is still tumble as a 
gazelle and a delight to watch, 
even if not putting himself 
under special pressure. 
Hum page bashed away cheer- 
fully, as usual 

Gloucestershire fielded rather 
sloppily and there was one 
ridiculous piece of business 
when Lawrence decided to 
change bis foot gear on the field 
of play while trying not to 
interrupt the proceedings. 1 wish 
he had been given a good tong 
run across the outfield (hi 
tiddly-eye-tie, my son John, one 
boot off and one boot on) but 
unluckily the ball did not come 
in the right direction. 

At tea 86 overs had been 
bowled and 246 runs scored. 
Humpage had passed his 50 and 
lithe little Kalh was approaching 
his 100. I met a man in the 
crowd who was not, 1 think, a 
regular cricket supporter, pos- 
sibly a relic of a sponsor’s lunch, 
but had confused this batsman 
with the immortal Manxman, 
Kelly (“catch him if you can"), 
and ended his rendition of the 
Old song with a tri umphan t 
“Ginger, you’re barmy”. I do 
not think the purpureous Barii 
especially appreciated this. 

Kallicfaarran, after un- 
characteristic delays on 99, 
readied his 100 in the 89th over. 
As soon as Warwickshire had 
reached 300 and their fourth 
batting point Gifford declared. 
This was very sensible ofhim. If 
the weather holds, which I think 
it will though it is trembling a 
bit at the edges of the sky, it 
should be a challenging final 
day.

SHEFFIELD : Yorkshire, with 
three first wickets in hand are 
139 runs behind Derbyshire. 

Martin Jean-Jacques is a 
name to conjure with. Whether 
be is a cricketer to conjure with 
remains to be seen, but few 
players can havenhad a more 
memorable second day in first- 
class cricket than Derbyshire’s 
25-year-oki recruit from Domi- 
nica via Shraards Bush. 

With Hill continuing in his 
impeturfrable vein in support, 
Jean-Jacques scored 73 against 
Yorkshire, the fifth highest tally 
ever scored by a Derbyshire 
player on his championship 
debut and then claimed tlie still- 
prized wicket of Boycott with 
only his fifth balL 

When the unlikely sounding 
combination resumed their 
partnership in the morning, it 
seemed unlikely to be of little 
more than irritant value. It 
rapidly took on a more serious 
dimension for the wilting York- 
shire attack and by the time it 
ended, records were felling more 
quickly than wickets had done 
the previous day. 

The find record, a minor one, 
came as Jean-Jacques unleashed 
an authentic cover drive to 
reach his 50, the 13th Derby- 
shire player to do so on his 
championship debut. It is safe to 
assume that none of his 
predececessors had done so 
batting at No i 1. 

By then the proceedings were 
becoming slightly light-headed 
and even Pul] was being in- 
fected, moving to bis own 150 
with a classical drive to match 
the cla im outside the sponsors’ 
tent. _ “the ultimate driving 
machine”. 

Minutes later, as the pair 
progressed at nearly five an 
over, they passed the old Derby- 
shire tenth wicket record of 93, 
set by Humphries and Horsley 
in 1914. Soon the county lost 
their claim to fame as holding 


the only record -stand below 
three figures in die books. 

Thatuudly mattered as other 
milestones passed with York- 
shire apparently powerless to 
intervene. The new record tenth 
wicket stand against Yorkshire 
bad just been set when Dennis 
finally ended 'their , frustration, 
beating tire whirling No ll to 
leave Hill on an unbeaten 
career-best 172, a monument to 
his patience, technique and 
determination in an timings 
lasting seven hours 47 minutes. 

Barnett's decision to bat on 
meant that he was pinning his 
hopes on bowling Yorkshire out 
twice. Anything Hill can do 
Boycott seemed likely at least to 
equal and he resisted Holding’s 
initial burst with all his usual 
Jean-Jacques, however, had not 
finished, beating the. master 
with a ball which left him

Revival halts Surrey 

By Ivo Tennant 


HINCKLEY:Surrey. with 10 
second-innings wickets in hand 
are 18 runs behind 
Leicestershire. 

Two late-order partnerships 
resuscitated Leicestershire's in- 
nings yesterday, taking them 
from tire the parlous position of 
82 for five to a total of 288, a 
first-innings lead of 34. Gray 
and Doughty, who had broken 
through m the morning, fin- 
ished with four wickets a piece. 

The first of these stands, 
between Boon and Gift, brought 
about 75 in 18 overs for the sixth, 
wicket. Then De Freitas and 
Benjamin put on 95 in 17 overs 
for the eighth wicket. Is both 
cases, the batsmen benefited 
from Gray having been over- 
bowled. 

This was by necessity since he 
obtained considerably more 
from the pitch - in particular, 
lift — than any other Surrey 
bowler. He had Potter leg-before 
shuffling across his stumps, 
bowled Briers; and induced an 
edge from Willey, who, poor 
fellow, has recovmd from bis 
Caribbean tour and injury only 
to fall victim to West Indian fast 
bowlers. Walsh was the antago- 
nist in his first match hack. 

When Boon and Clift came 
together. Gray was favouring his 
shorter run, off which be looks 
less dangerous than, say. Hold- 
ing, who is equally effective off 
either. Doughty, who had taken 
the wickets of Cobb and 
Whitaker cheaply, had no fur- 
ther joy until late in the day. 

Boon and Clift gradually took 


control, whereas De Freitas and 
Benjamin, who now averages 
174, went for their shots im- 
mediately. Sixes rained down on 
the pavilion off Focock’s bowl- 
ing, and they were not averse to 
hooking Gray in opaque light 

De Freitas, born in Dominica 
but a United Kingdom resident 
since 1976, made 67 in 77 
minutes with five fours and 
three sixes. Doughty ended the 
partnership by having bim leg- 
before when he began a new 
spell, but Benjamin went on to 
reach his first half-century in 
county cricket, in 103 minutes 
with two fours and two sixes.

Batsmen 
struggle 
all day 

By Richard Streeton 

TTJNBRIDGE WELLS: Sussex, 
with all their second-wickets in 
hand, lead Kent-by 76 runs. 

. Kent declared behind after - 
. they were rescued yesterday by a 
seventh-wicket,, stand domi- 
nated by. Steven Marsh- All day, 
the batsmen mostly struggled on 
a wearing pitch and Le Roux, 
the Sussex fast bowler, had his 
right index finger broken by 
Alderman. The accident hap- 
pened at -the Pavillion end, 
where the bounce tended to be 
uneven and where most of the 
wickets fell. 

Le Roux win be out of cricket 
for a month, which is an 
alarming thought for Sussex. 
Reeve, though, rose to this 
particular occasion with spirit 
and three wickets for him broke 
the back of the Kent timings and 
left them struggling. Hinks bad 
already been yorfced by Pigott 
before Reeve switched ends to 
take advantage of the extra 
bounce available. 

Fust Reeve knocked Tavarfi’s 
off stump out of the ground. 
Then Benson drove a rail toss 
low to deep point where Stand- 
ing took a good catch. Taylor 
was unable to keep down a 
liftinaball and was held at short 
leg. Christopher Cowdrey and 
Fran were both caught when 
they made ag gres si ve strokes 
against Bredin, the slow left-arm 
spinner playing only his second 
championship maim. 

Sussex, too, bad struggled 
earlier, though a typically, joint 
jaunty innings from Gould en- 
sured that the ship went down 
with all guns blazing. Sussex, 
in for 4 overnight, reached 
246. Alderman took the - first 
four wickets to fell yesterday to 
finish with his best figures for . 
Kent 

Gould, at No 8, scored 60 of 
die last 98 runs in 22 overs, 
owing much to his eye aitd the 
determined streak in his charac- 
ter. During the winter, Gonkl 
took off two stone while work- 
ing on a building she and both 
bis batting and wicket keeping 
this season took all the better fox 
it Nor do the cares of captaincy 
when Barclay is absent seem to - 
affect him. 

Gould, with a six over mid- 
wicket,- firstknoclced off the 
shackles previously imposed by 
Underwood. Then some force- 
ful drives and polls, even 
brought a brief withdrawal from ' 
the firing line for Alderman.

Scots on the receiving 
end as tactical 


thuggery takes die field 


From David Miller, Mexico City 


The World Cup is out of 
hand only a third of the way 
through the first round. De- 
spite the usual exhortations of 
the referees' committee and 
promises of firm action 
matches are being corrupted 
by tactical thuggery, if any- 
thing on a worse scale than in 
1981 


In a new year statement in 
the FA News. after the draw 
for the final competition. Joao 
Havelange, the president, re- 
quested members of the Press 
to pillory those players and 
teams who were guilty of 
unfair play. Yet bow can we 
pillory individuals when the 
referees fail to punish them? 

Denmark’s thrilling victory 
over Scotland on Wednesday 
afternoon in Neza, by far the 
most outstanding match of the 
competition so far. was deval- 
ued by the gross, deliberate 
foul by their midfield player, 
Kiauss Berggreen, on Charlie 
Nicholas six minutes from the 
end. Nicholas has torn ankle 
ligaments and will miss 
Scotland's remaining first- 
round matches 

Berggreen, who has been 
three seasons with Pisa and is 
on his way to Roma, should 
have been sent off by Lajos 
Nemeth, of Hungary, but 
there was no more than a free 
kick, taken by Souness. from 
which McAvennie, an earlier 
substitute for Sturrock, 
hooked overhead past a post 
in a close attempt to equalize. 

If Berggreen was not sent off 
then he should be suspended 
for what he said afterwards. 
“It was a professional foul.” 
he admitted. “I had to do it 
and if I had not I would have 
been an amateur. 1 apologize 
to Nicholas." Such cynicism is 
scandalous. It is totally wrong 
that Berggreen should be 
available to play in Denmark's 
second match against 
Uruguay. 

Earlier in the day in Quere- 
taro West Germany and Uru- 


guay had played a match 
which overall was fer worse, 
possibly the worst yet, with 
more obstruction and tripping 
by both sides than when South 
Korea played Argentina. The 
Germans obstructed, the Uru- 
guayans kicked, and Christov, 
of Yugoslavia, did little about 
it other than to book 
Uruguay's defender. Diogo. 
We have a competition bris- 
tling with teams brazenly de- 
termined to prevent the 
opposition playing football by 
fair means or foul. 

Nicholas's injury is wretch- 
ed misfortune for Scotland, 
for not only did they lose a 
marvellous match in which 
for half an hour in the first half 



they held the initiative, but 
Nicholas had revealed all that 
effervescence he used to have 
when at Celtic. The therapy by 
Ferguson and his assistant 
Smith, had worked. 

The luckless Nicholas- said 
afterwards that it was the 
worst foul be had ever suf- 
fered. In the six minutes 
before he went down he had 
been stretching Denmark to 
the limit once beating three 
men before rolling the ball 
square to Souness, who shot 
wide when at least he should 
have hit the target 

There was no denying 
Denmark's superiority in 
technique in a match which 
ran for 90 minutes on a knife- 
edge- The Danes began by 
playing walking football, try- 
ing to draw the Scols forward, 
but the tenacity and imagina- 
tion of the Scottish team, with 
Nicol outstanding on the left 
of midfield. Stuirock running 
with verve as partner to 
Nicholas and Gough tactically 


Referees kept busy 


Mexico City (AP) — Cautions 
for two Uruguayans, an Iraqi 
and a Dane on Wednesday took 
the total number of players 
booked in the first 12 matches of 
the World Cop to 19. Until 
yesterday only the France-Can- 
ada and Hungary-Soviet Union 
matches had been played with- 
out the referee issuing matrons. 

- FIFA, the International Foot- 
ball Federation, said on 
Wednesday that Argentina’s 
. Diego Maradona and Mexico's 
Hngo Sanchez had been foaled 


the highest Bomber of times in 
opening matches — 10 times 
each. 


Maradona was repeatedly 
tripped in Argentina's 3-1 
Group A victory over Sooth 
Korea on Monday, while San- 
chez was the main target of 
defenders' feet as Mexico beat 
Belgian '2-4 in Group B on 
Tuesday. Sanchez also received 
a caution- for throwing the ball' 
away after Mexico scored their 
first goaL 


astute as an attacking 
rightback, refused to be 
mesmerized. 

With Miller playing sweeper 
behind McLeish and Aitken, 
the threat of Laudrup and 
Elkjaer was reduced for al- 
most all of the first half. Then, 
in a devastating first IS min- 
utes of the second half, 
Laudrup and Elkjaer, the Ital- 
ian exiles, tore Scotland's 
defence apart. Desperately 
Scotland held on, with two 
last-ditch tackles by Miller, 
but in ■ the 58th minute a 
superb pass from Araeson, the 
best nndfield player on the 
pitch, -sent Elkjaer racing 
through on the left. 

He gathered the ball in one 
movement to drag it past 
Miller, getting what the Scots 
claimed was a lucky deflection 
off Milter's shins, but that is 
the bonus so often of great 
players moving and turning at 
speed. Elkjaer rifled his shot 
past Leighton in off the right- 
hand post 

With Sturrock also receiv- 
ing an ankl e injury, Ferguson 
will be obliged to juggle be- 
tween Archibald, Sharp and 
McAvennie against West Ger- 
many. He said afterwards that 
he thought Scotland had de- 
served- a point and that al- 
though they respected West 
Germany’s ability, they were 
not afraid of it 

“Germany played very well 
and seemed the better side to 
me from watching the first 
hour on television," Ferguson 
said. “They did well to come 
from one down. But we 
showed today we have enough 
quality still to be optimistic. 
We have two more difficult 
games but we knew that before 
we came." 

Scotland outshone anything 
that we saw from England. 
There was a pattern and 
rhythm to their play and the 
only, disappointing perfor- 
mance was from Strachan. 
Denmark, however, con- 
firmed that, if they are physi- 
cally strong enough, they have 
the quality to go all the way to 
the finaL

By JoyceWhitehead 


England's under-21 women’s 
team are in Muiheim sear 
Dusseldorf this weekend at an 
international tournament. They 
play West Germany today. Can- 
ada tomorrow and The Nether- 
lands on Sunday. 

Last year they lied for top 
place with The Netherlands on 
points but ended second on a 
goal count Unfortunately, Jane 
Sixsmith (voted the player of 
that tournament), Lorraine 
Parker and Kathy Tilbury, all 
members of the team in 1985, 
are unable to play because of 
examinations, but captained by 
Suzanne Brim We the team still 
have strength. 

■ The vice-capiain -is ^Tracey 
Wilce, who recently gained the 
experience of continental 


hockey when playing in the 
Europa Cup for ‘ 


Ipswich for 
whom she scored two goals. 

The matches will be hard and 
in the end power may be the 
deciding factor.

established him as a worthy 
contender for the Common-

for years."

Madrid’s altitude, almost 700 
metres above - sea - level un- 
doubtedly helped Christie's 
performance, as did the warm- 
evening and a 1.8m-per-second

measure of of the worth of 
Christie’s run was the oppo- 
sition. He knocked out top 
American sprinter, Emmit 
King, in his heat, which was 
already a new personal best for 
Christie at 10.25scc.Then in the 
final Thomas Jefferson, Olym-

was a good metre down on 
Christie in second place in 
10.17sec. Christie is now decid- 
ing whether to run a 200m in 
Gdieborg next Thursday, or 
simply wait for tbe sprint double 


representatives, Todd Bennett of 
Southampton and Kriss Akabosi 
of the Army. Barnett is also 
down' IP compete in the 100 
metres. Linford Christie, the 
new British record holder and 
winner of the event in 1985, is 
not down -to defend his title. 


Christie^ elevation to tbe 
exahed rank of Commonwealth 
favourite, alongside Ben John- 
son of Canada, has been 
achieved almost as rapidly as his 
sprinting speed. Just over three 
months ago, Christie, aged 26, 
an out-of-work local govern- 
ment officer from West London, 


was a journeyman spnnier on 
the evidence of his best time of 


10.42 for the 100m and 21.0 for 
the 200m. However, injuries 
bad played a no small part in 
arresting his development. 


That form carried over as he 
improved his personal best in 
Oslo three weeks ago to 1033 
and 20.79sec But even that did 
not prepare him — or os — for 
the shock that was to follow 
when he went back to his 
favourite sprinting ground in 
Madrid on Tuesday. 

Commonwealth Games’ se- 
lection is the issue at stake in 
Birmingham tonight and tomor- 
row afternoon of the Women’s 
AAA championship. Faced with 
an ultimatum from Marea 
Hartman, the honorary sec- 
retary, that they must compete 
in order to be considered for 
Edinbiogh, all of Britain’s major 
women stars, Tessa Sanderson, 
Fatima Whitbread, Wendy Sly, 
Kathy Cook and Zola Budd, are 
competing. 

The further issue at stake for 
Miss Budd is whether her likely 
victory in the 1,000m in the 
championships, sponsored by 
Trustee Savings tank, will en- 
sure her a plaice in Edinburgh, 
since there has been much 
political debate about her long 
absences from Britain exempt- 
ing her from qualification. It 
now seems that Miss Hartman 
is willing to accept that the 
house Miss Budd bought in 
Guildford last November is her 
qualifying residence. 


BOWLS 


Federation’s polish in diamond year 


By Gordon Allan 


If yen mention the English

i-green bowlers, they

EqrIMji Bowling Association 
(EBA) and job have to enlighten 
them. 


week after the ESA champion- 
ships at Worthing in August. 

Until now tbe two events have 
always coincided, which, given 
the EISA’s pr e d omina nce in the 
game, meant that the EBF 
suffered In terms of publicity 
and sponsorship. 


In a way then- ignorance of the 
EBPs existence is under- 
standable. The EBF have lived 
in the shadow of the ESA for. a . 
long time, not least because the 
EBA can offer international 
com petition and the EBF can- 
not. Now, in the year of the 
EBF s diamond jubilee, there 
that the situation is 


Another indication of change 
Is that more EBA counties are 
showing interest in the EBF 
code. Cleveland are the latest to 
affiliate, bringing to . 12 the 
number playing the EBF game. 
Essex have not affiliated yet but 
are said to be moving in that 
direction. It is not a question of 
players deserting one code for 
the other: simply of their free- 
dom to play both if they wish. 


For 


instance, the EBF 
management committ e e decided 
recently that, starting next year, 
the joint annual championships 
of tbe EBF and the English 
Women's Bowing Federation on 
the Son Castle greens at 
Skegness would be played the 


The EBF version of bowls, 
embracing angles, pairs and 
triples but not fours, is found in 
Cleveland, Derbyshire, Dur- 
ham, Hambersxkv Huntingdon- 
shire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, 
Northamptonshire, North 
Cambridgeshire, Northumber- 
land^ Nottinghamshire and Suf- 
folk. It is strongest in Norfolk 


(180 dabs), Suffolk (138) and 
Lincolnshire (126). 

It originated in Newcastle In 
1892 wires miners and factory 
workers in the North and Mid- 
buds were looking for a form of 
bowling better suited to their 
loos hours than the protracted 
traditional type. They adopted a 
set of Scottish laws and played 
with only two woods, on grassed 
areas without banks and ditches, 
often belonging to puMjchoases. 

Federation bowls is still ba- 
sically a two-wood game but m 
1963 they introduced four-wood 
singles tal seven years later, 
three-wood triples. Both de- 
cisions were in response to 
requests from EBF bowlers who 
also wanted to play the EBA 

gfllHft. 

There are differences in the 
Federation laws. Touchers are 
not recognized. A bowl that 
touches the jack and finishes in 
the ditch is dead. Players can 
change position during a match, 
on the completion ©f an end — 
slop to No 2, No 2 to lead, and so 
ml David Bryant thinks that 


both these laws deserve serious 
consideration fry the EBA. 

Some players have distin- 
guished themselves in both 
codes. Chris Ward, twice the 
EBA singles champion, has won 
the EBF four-wood singles, and 
Bill Hobart, an EBA inter- 
national has won tbe EBP two- 


wood singles- Harry Kershaw 
"" i r t hmah erlaod 


played for N or th pnatierlan d at 
both codes and went on to win 
the EBA rfwgte* and an farter- 
national cap. Roy Cotts, John 
Ottaway and Roy Staples are 
other EBA men of championship 
standard with an EBF 
background. 

The EBF Open tornnament is 
being played at Skegness next 
week (June 8 to 13). One of the 1 
events is the mixed pairs (mixed 
doubles in tenuis language), a 
concept of the game long popular 
with tbe Federation people bnt 
not granted national status by 
the EBA and the EWBA unto 


last year. Be patient There 
could beh 


i further examples of the 
EBA doing today what the EBF 
did last week. 


YACHTING 


Victim of 
its own 


success 


By Barry Pjckthall ; 


" With many big names misa 
from, tbe Carisberg two-hand 
Transatlantic race starting from 
Plymouth tomorrow, the 50- 
strong entry wiU be something 
of a disappointment to the 
Royal Western Yacht Club. 
Their last two-handed race, won 
by Chay BJyth and Rob James 
back in 1981, attracted 102 
starters and the dub’s other 
single- banded Transatlantic 
daisies have boasted - 100-plus 
entries since the early seventies. 

To some extent, the dub, 
which pioneered sfaorthanded 
sailing and the sponsorship that 
is now so inextricably linked to 
this area of the sport, is tbe- 
victirn of its own success. 

When Eric Tabariy, then an 
unknown naval lieutenant, won 
the second of the Royal 
Western's single-handed races 
in 1964, his elevation to the 
superstar class m bis native 
France spawned a navy of 
sponsor-backed sailing as- 
pirants, all keen to share the 
same success and exposure. 

Now it is the French who rule 
the waves and a rival event from 
Rouen to New York last month 
attracted much of the cream in 
the French muhihuU world. 

Numbers in tomorrow’s Brit- 
ish race may also have been 
affected by a second rival event, 
the Yachting Monthly Triangle 
race starting from Torquay on 
June IS. More a competitive 
cruise than a race, tins two- 
week two-handed event which 
takes the fleet first through to 
Treguier on tbe Brittany coast, 
then Crosshaven, Ireland, be-

of eight hones for Powell indud-

third and twelfth respectively at 
Badminton this year- Powell will 
remain bused at Dodfatgton Park

has played a key role in PewefTs

“This event really began as a 
protest by amateurs squeezed 
out of ever doing well in the 
Royal Western races by the 
heavily sponsored entrants," 


Andrew Bray, editor of Yachting

judging by the high level of 
entries tbe concept of a racing 
cruise has a great deal to 
commend it. 

Another magazine to answer 
this need is Yachting World

England readjust 

with a struggle 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 


LORD 'S: England have scared 
245 for fire against India. 

England had their problems 
yesterday adapting to a much 
simpler form of cricket than 
the one they played in the 
West Indies in the winter; but 
thanks to the Essex pair of 
Gooch and Pringle, who add- 
ed 147 together for the fifth 
wicket, they managed it in the 
end. By the close of play in the 
first Test match against India, 
sponsored by Comhili. they 
bad scored 24S for five. Gooch 
haring made his sixth Test 
hundred. 

After being put in on a dry. 
often bright day. blown 
through by a biung wind. 
England found themselves 98 
for four half an hour after 
lunch. Che tan Sharma. a bun- 
dle of energy with a shock of 
hair shaped like a buzby. 
having just removed Gower, 
Gatting and Lamb for six runs 
in 1 i balls. He had. of course, 
never done anything like it 
before. 

One had jusrbegun to think, 
too. bow thankful England's 
batsman must have been to be 
playing such a nice, gentle 
form of cricket Although only 
Gower and Gatling batted 
without one, there was no 
earthly need of a helmet It 
hardly seemed a contest Yet 
cricket being the game it is, 
England were suddenly even 
worse placed, when Pringle 
joined Gooch, than they usu- 
ally were in West Indies last 
winter. 

It was a slow pitch, on 
which survival should have 
been easy enough in the 
absence of Marshall. Holding, 


Gamer and Patterson operat- 
ing together. That Gooch 
scored only 24 in 94 balls in 
two hours before lunch was 
partly because of bis need to 
re-establish himself with a 
long Test innings, partly be- 
cause the ball was not coming 
on to the bat as he likes and 
partly because India bowled 
accurately to mostly protec-

live fields. At tea. Gooch was 
still only 63. In the evening 
sunshine he engaged a higher 
gear. 

His hundred was his second 
against India, his second for 
England at Lord's and his 
second in successive Tests in 
England, following his 196 
against Australia at the Oval 
nine months ago. What better 
way could he have found of 
celebrating the birth of his 
twin daughters earlier this 
week. He hit 12 fours and a slx 
and batted for just under six 
hours. 

As he did at Old Trafford in 
the second of the one-day 


internationals recently, 
Pringle played the innings 
required of him . He made 
heavy weather of the faalf- 
volley. but the responsibility 
be must have felt, as well as 
the pitch, will have bad some- 
thing to do with that. With a 
quarter of an hour to go he 
went to his first Test SO. If it is 
of any interest, Botham has 
scored two fifties in his last 25 
Test innings. 

After Robinson had sur- 
vived a worthwhile appeal for 
leg before in the first over of 
toematch, from Kapil Dev, he 
and Gooch followed a fairly 
untroubled course. Without 
any genuine pace to discom- 
fort him, Robinson began to 
restore his tarnished image. 
He would have been run out 
when he was 23 had Kapil 
Dev, fielding smartly to his 
own bowling, hit the stumps 
from seven to eight yards. But 
it came as a surprise when he 
was caught at silly mid-off off 
the leading edge. This was a 
nice piece of bowling, the ball 
being in the air long enough 
for Robinson to make an error 
ofjudgment. 

Heartened by a generous 
reception, Gower cream ed his 
first ball through the covers 
for four, one of the few high- 
class strokes of the day. At 
lunch England were 81 for 
one, blissfully unaware, I 
would imagine, of the troubles 
ahead. They were coasting 
along afterwards, all uncon- 
cerned, when Sharma took 
them by surprise. He bad 
Gower caught at the wicket 
down the leg side, trying to 
swing the ball away to long leg, 


and two balls later he picked 
out Gatling’s off stump., 
Gatting. playing outside the' 
line, got an inside edge. After 
driving a no-ball from Sharma 
for four Lamb pushed him to 
forward short leg. probably off 
bat and pad. Srikkanth took 
the catch at the second at- 
tempt, leaving England to be 
pulled round by Gooch and 
PringTe. 

Lamb was out in tbe fortieth 
over of the day, Gooch 56 
overs later. It really is quite 
inexcusable that the Indians 
were prepared to agree only to 
a minimum of 90 overs in a 
day's Test play rather than the 
96 that England sought and 
India settled for when they 
were last here in 1982. They 
should have been told by the 
Test and County Cricket 
Board, the home authority, 
’that 96 is the rule in England 
and that that is that. So should 
everyone else. West Indies 
included. By six o’clock yes- 
terday. the time for stumps to 
be drawn, exactly 96 overs 

bad, in fact, been bowled, but 
that was a coincidence. It 
showed, all the same, how 
easily it can and should be 
done. 

India field much better 
these days than ever they used 

to, and it was good that they 
were rewarded, with only four 
balls left, with Gooch's wicket, 
bowled by the irrepressible 
Sharma. He had been operat- 
ing from the Nursery end 
earlier, when he had given 
England such a shock. Now, in 
a final fling from the Pavilion 
end he brought one back to 
bowl Gooch.

Bingham backs Robson’s 
men to battle through 


Billy Bingham, the North- 
ern Ireland manager, took 
time out from his own World 
Cup problems to sympathize 
with Bobby Robson after 
-England's shock defeat against 
Portugal. His message of hope 
for his England counterpart 
was: “They will still get 
through.” 

Bingham raid: “If I was 
Bobby I would be feeling very 
sick 'because England, had 
most of the ball and could 
have been 3-0 up against 
Portugal. They were very 
unlucky. 

“I seriously want to see 
them do well and I am sure 
they can get the three points 
they may need from the other 
two games.” 

• The troubles of ITV Sport 
in Mexico continue. The 007 
luckiest crew seem to be based 
with the Irish in Guadalajara. 
Paul Doherty, head of sport 
and son of the famous Irish 
player, Peter, bad a lucky 
escape this week when £3,000 
in Mexican pesos and Ameri- 
can dollars was stolen from his 
room at the team's luxury and 
heavily-guarded hotel 


The Mexicans reacted with 
commendable efficiency and 
the money was found in the 
pocket of one of the security 
guards who was on duty near 
the rooms. 

• If Italy retain the World 
Cup, they might owe it to 
Lorenzo Lorini, their chef, 
and the mineral water and 



Parmesan cheese they brought 
with them. 

Tbe Italians seem to be one 
of the few sides unaffected by 
stomach complaints, and Leo- 
nardo. Veocchiet, the team- 
doctor, is convinced their 
forward planning has enabled 
them to enjoy their food and 
to have no after-efleci& 

The cooking of all their food 
is supervised by Lorini, who

• The West German team 
may be sweating blood in 
Mexico, but back home there 
is a serious shortage of donors. 
Blood donations have Men

West Berlin as many Germans

on television, the country's 
Red Cross say. 

Before tbe tournament be- 
gan, between 200 and 250 
Berliners donated blood daily, 
enough to meet normal re- 
quirements for emergency sur- 
gery in area hospital* But the 
number has dropped to be- 
tween 90 and 130, .and it is a 
national trend.

Brazil’s 

health 

warning 

. Northern Ireland have been 
branded “a team of luni- 
ks" by the Mexicans, 
“rustlerS” by the anxious 
Brazilians. 

But Billy Bingham, the Irish 
manager, laughs off the smear 
campaign being waged against 
his hard-tackling team, after 
their rough World Cup en- 
counter against Algeria. 

The “lumberjacks” lag was 
given by El Universal, the 
ultra-conservative and much- 
respected newspaper. But 
Bingham retorted: “They may 
call us that, but I saw plenty of 
choppers in the Brazil v Spain 
game — and Algeria are hardly 
on the side of the angels." 

Tele Santana, Brazil's man- 
ager, is so concerned about the 
Irish approach that- he is 
desperate to get both points 
against Algeria in tbe Jalisco 
Stadium today to ensure qual- 
ification for the second phase 
before the Irish game. 

“I'm really worried about 
tbe health of my players 
against Northern Ireland,” he 
said. “They take the game to 
extremes. We win have to be 
really clever against them. I 
just bope the referee will be 
good and in control." 

Bingham laughed: “They 
are trying to get the referee on 
their side." 

But Northern Ireland, who 
frequently bile back when 
provoked, could . find them- 
selves in for more criticism 
when they tackle Spain tomor- 
row, looking for victory, to 
join Brazil in the second 
round. 

After their victory in Valen- 
cia four years ago, it could be 
another hard and explosive 
game. Bui if the Irish, who 
have no injury problems, can 
repeat that sensation, it will 
turn their game against Brazil 
on June 12 into one where 
angels will not fear to tread. 


Italians 
may be 
looking 
to Futre 

SflJtiUa, Mexico (AP) — 
Paste Futre, toe “wonder boy” 
of the Portuguese team, Trim 
played 18 sparkling minutes 
against En gland on Tuesday, 
says he would like to move to 
the Italian League next season 
and listed Jnveatus, of Turin, 
Roma and luternazionale, of 
MBaa, as the teams he favours 
most 

Futre raft that some ftalfiui 
dubs were seeking his ser- 
vices, but could not 
daborate.The 20-year-oM for- 
ward, whose dribbling skills 
and pace tormented England's 
defence when he came on as a 
late substitute and helped 
swing the match Portugal's 
way, conunented: “My play 
would easily adapt to toe high 
technical quality of Italian 
football If I transfer to Italy it 
wfll not be for money but for 
growing experience in me of 
the world's best leagues.” 

Futre is one of at least three 
Portuguese players reportedly 
being sought by Italian dubs. 
Others are Fernando Gomes, 
the veteran forward, and 
Jaime Pacheco, the midfield 
player. Their possible transfer 
must be negotiated by their 
dubs as Portuguese players 
are not allowed to deal with 
their own contracts. Futre ami 
Gomes both play for FC Porto 
while Pacheco plays for Sport- 
ing Lisbon.' 

. Top . Italian League dubs 
cannot bare foreign players for 
next season, after a ban that 
expires in 1987. However, 
three newly-promoted dubs 
from the second division will 
be allowed to have two non- 
Italian players each. 

AC Milan recently signed 
Claudio Borghi, the Argentin- 
ian forward, who will play for 
one season on loan to newly- 
promoted Ascofiu Other Ital- 
ian dubs could do the same 
with Portuguese players. 

Copenhagen

Copenhagoi (Rada)— The 
Danish capital erupted with 
joy as football su ppor ters pa- 
raded through the city after 
Denmark's 1-0 World Cup 
victory ova Scotland in Mexi- 
co. Ten thousand watched the 
match on a giant television 
screen in the Tivoli Gardens 
amusement park and then 
poured into tbe streets to 
celebrate. Police said there 
was little trouble as support-

hats and chanting “We are 
red, we are white, we are 
Danish dynamite”, made their 
way round Copenhagen to the 
accompaniment of car hams.

Group F when they meet

ginning of the week the world 
had expected them to fill toe 
lofty position but after the 
defeat by Portugal on Tues- 
day, it seemed momentarily as 
inaccessible as the peak of 
Saddle Mountain which 
towers over the Tedmologico 
Stadium. ;*• 

If England had taken one of 
several opportunitfes against 
the Portuguese they could 
already be there, looking down 
on their three fellow-contend- 
ers. Lineker, who had toe 
misfortune to miss most of 
them,, is convinced that “if 
we’d got one, we would have 
got four or five. Thai is how 
highly I rated them”. 

In terms of technical ability 
and possession^ England were 
ahead on points and they 
should, substantially, • be so 
again today. The Moroccans, 
toe outsiders in toe group, are 
touch players who occasional- 
ly resemble toe Brazilians (the 
birthplace of their manager, 
Jose Faria), but their defence 
is notably fallible, particularly 
at heights over seven or eight 
feet. 

At that altitude Hatehsy has 
few peers in the world, let 
alone in North Africa. Al- 
though his work on toe surface 
remains relatively unreliable, 
his power in the air is beyond 
dispute. “They won't like to 
see him up there. They will be 
terrified of him,” said Bobby

There is one danger, howev-

more than aware. It comes in 
the shape of Bouberdala el 
Idrissi . AbddaznL .- Known, 
mercifully, as Bouberdala, he 
is similar in Style to Portugal's 
elusive'. .Carlos Manuel, the 
forward who wandered into 
the* empty room around 
Gomes three days ago. Nei- 
ther Butcher nor Fenwick 
were able consistently to re- 
stria his freedom and eventu- 
ally he punished them and 
England by scoring Portugal's 
winner. . 

“Fll be having a word with 
the central defenders to sort 
out the problem,” Robson 
said. “One of them will have 
to come out and deal with it” 
The other- members of 
Morocco's front line are both 
confusingly known as Merry 
and are both with- French 
clubs. Bouberdala, another of 
their four foreign exiles, plays 
for Sion in Switzerland

home-based players are 
Dolmy, the man credited with 
128 caps, and Ezaki. whose 
name should be familiar to

best goalkeeper in. Africa, he

WORLD CUP TV 


Every. World Cop brings ns 
new tactical advances (even if 
Ally MacLeod draught tactics 
were a kind of peppermint, as 
a Scottish pteyeranatsoggest- 
ed). World Cups have brought 
ns wingless wonders, tire Bm- 
Titian free kick, total football. 

This one bos already 
brought as a new approach to 
the game. Let us caO it les 
bastardos football — football 
born on the wrong side of tire 
blanket. 

In so for as it is basal 


football is not new. The novel- 
ty isia organization and 
method. The logic is that 


THUGGERY TAKES

haphazard, impulsive cheating 
is no good to anyone. But once 
you have your che ati ng orga- 
nized on a proper footing, you 
are to get some- 

where- Los bastardos football 
brings tire concept of team 
'spirit to cheating, ft brings the 
coach in as wefl. 

Tbe theory is that if yon 
cheat enough yea can't possi- 
bly lose. Therefore, you have a 
5fi£0 chance of winning. You 
put theory info practice by 
waiting intfil as opponent 
attempts to use football skills 
to go past you. Yon then kick 
him extremely bard, every 
single tone. He will never get 
past: soon be wfll stop even 
trying. 

If you lock enough people 
often enough to do yow bit for 
the team, every now ami then 
yon will be unlucky and get 
punished. Don’t marry': your 
side have lost no more than a 
single kick at toe ball white 
your opponents have lost a 
good proportion of tire nerve 
and effectiveness of tire 
players. 

To get praisbed in front of 
goal is slightly more serious 
hot by no means calamitous, ft 
merely brings in the second 
phase of lbs bastardos foot- 
ball: the Biroam Wood phase. 
You form a defensive wall 
about five yards from the bail. 
When required to move back 

yim do $0 with insolent slow- 
ness. And as soon as the 
referee moves back, yon and 
your five colleagues begin a 
united shuffle forwards. You 
wfll be six yards at most from 
the ball as it is licked. The 
ball always hits toe walk the 
cycle can begin again. 

There are currently a billion 
or so chaps around the global 
village watching los bastardos 
football They will all of them 
be disgusted by the players, 
the teams and toe nations that 
practise it, and by tire spot 
itself that allows it Can 
football do no better than this? 
It seems not. Los bastardos 
football rules OK.
